Gabriele Muccino

Gabriele Muccino came to the attention of American moviegoers when The Last Kiss, which he wrote and directed, won the audience prize at the 2002 Sundance Film Festival. Entertainment Weekly named it one of the ten best movies of the year. Muccino wrote and directed an equally impressive follow-up film Remember Me, My Love which featured Monica Bellucci. The Pursuit of Happyness is his first English-language film.

Born in Rome, Italy, Muccino attended the directing program the Centro Sperimentale di Cinematographia. Upon completion, he created documentaries and shorts for RAI, Italy's national television network. His feature directorial debut, That's It, which he also wrote, earned him a nomination as Best Director at the Turin Film Festival in 1998. His subsequent film, But Forever in My Mind, received several nominations and awards at festivals around Europe, including the Grand Prix at the Paris Film Festival.

The Last Kiss, his third Italian movie, was a critical success and box-office hit in Italy, wining five David di Donatello awards (Italy's equivalent of the Oscar), including Best Director. His next feature, Remember Me, My Love, won Best Producer, Best Screenplay and Best Supporting Actress from the Italian National Syndicate of Film Journalists.
