Danny Boyle's journey to Oscar night began in a working-class family in Lancashire in 1956. After a career in the theatre - working for such esteemed companies as Joint Stock and the Royal Court - Boyle went to the BBC in Belfast and produced dramas such as Alan Clarke's "Elephant," and "Mr. Wroes Virgins." "Shallow Grave" announced the arrival of a dynamic new talent to British cinema - a reputation that was confirmed with the blistering "Trainspotting" - the zeitgeist film of the 90s. The succeeding films - "A Life Less Ordinary," "The Beach," "28 Days Later," "Sunshine" and "Slumdog Millionaire" - established him as the leading director of his generation - one for whom the collaboration between director, producer and writer was of the essence. The Danny Boyle who emerges from these interviews is frank, funny, charming and wholeheartedly inspiring.
