Lone Scherfig (born 1959) is one of the most acclaimed directors of her generation. Her films are characterized by their distinctive aesthetics, great attention to detail, and complex, believable characters. In 2010, she won universal acclaim for her film Italian for Beginners. In its making, she followed Dogme 95 principles and the film became an international success, winning the Silver Bear at the Berlin International Film Festival. The jury appreciated the way the author “advanced the Dogme movement by permitting the cast to bring humanity and humour to her film.” Her first feature film in English was the comedy drama Wilbur Wants to Kill Himself. Scherfig’s greatest success so far came with the film An Education (2009) which won a Golden Globe and was nominated for three Academy Awards. In 2011, One Day, a romantic drama starring Anne Hathaway and Jim Sturgess, was released, and three years later, Scherfig made The Riot Club, a thriller telling the story of a group of Oxford students who are members of an elite hedonistic drinking club. Her latest feature, Their Finest, starring Bill Nighy and Gemma Arterton, will be screened at the Karlovy Vary International Film Festival.
