Out in Film: Stephen Daldry

Idol worship: Stephen Daldry, director/producer.

- His career began in the English theater, directing many productions at both the Royal Court Theatre and the Royal National Theatre.

- When his An Inspector Calls went on to Broadway, he won a Tony Award.

- He received Academy Award nominations as Best Director for his first two feature films, Billy Elliot and The Hours.

- Going for three in a row, his next film — The Reader, starring Kate Winslet and Ralph Fiennes — hits theaters next month.

- And he could get another Tony too with Billy Elliot: The Musical, now playing previews on Broadway and officially opening November 13.
