Macaulay Culkin returned to acting after a six-year hiatus when he starred in Madame Melville. In addition, he has recently performed a starring role in the feature film Party Monster. He began his stage career at the age of four and made the first of several small film appearances in Rocket Gibraltar, playing the grandson of Burt Lancaster. It was in the John Hughes film Uncle Buck (playing John Candy's inquisitive nephew) that Culkin first began to attract real attention. He then shot to international stardom with his lead role in Hughes' film Home Alone, in which he played a resourceful child accidentally left behind when his family goes on vacation. Culkin received a Golden Globe nomination for his performance. A later sequel, Home Alone II: Lost in New York, was also a worldwide success. His other film credits include Jacob's Ladder, My Girl, The Good Son, and Richie Rich.
