Director Bio

Danny Boyle

P&I - Director Bio

Danny Boyle won the Academy Award® for Best Director for Slumdog Millionaire (2008), which won eight Oscars® in total, including Best Picture, and more than 100 other industry awards. His feature Trainspotting remains one of the best-loved and highest-grossing British independent films of all time. His films include The Beach (2000), 28 Days Later (2002), Sunshine (2007), 127 Hours (2010) and Steve Jobs (2015). He has also directed highly acclaimed work in television and theatre, including 2011’s Frankenstein at the Royal National Theatre and the Channel 4 series Babylon in 2014.



This delightful musical comedy, directed by Danny Boyle from a script by Richard Curtis, is fresh and funny with a wonderful cast and – most importantly – plenty of wonderful music. Himesh Patel stars as struggling singer-songwriter Jack Malik, who has an accident during a mysterious global blackout and wakes to a world where the Beatles never existed. With help from his tough-as-nails US agent, Mandi (Kate McKinnon), he becomes a star, but risks losing his childhood best friend, Ellie (Lily James). Will he let it be, or go back to where he once belonged? [12A]
