Himself

Biography

Jean-Marc Vallee was a prominent Quebec-born filmmaker who achieved huge success in America for directing Matthew McConaughey in an Oscar-winning performance in "Dallas Buyer's Club" (2013). A native of Montreal, Vallee began making acclaimed short films during the '90s and quickly made a name for himself as a promising young director to watch. His debut feature, 1995's "Black List," was a huge hit in Canada and by the late '90s Vallee was directing low-budget films like "Los Locos" (1997) and "Loser Love" (1999) in Hollywood. Those films, however, failed to catch on with the mainstream public, and it would be several more years before Vallee achieved the same success from "Black List." By the mid-2000s, however, after he directed the well-received family drama "C.R.A.Z.Y." (2005), Vallee was once again a hot commodity, and before long he was racking up various accolades for his next two films: "The Young Victoria" (2009) and "Café de Flore" (2011). Then in 2013 Vallee directed Matthew McConaughey and Jared Leto in Academy Award-winning performances in the biographical drama "Dallas Buyers Club." The film earned additional Oscar nods, including Best Picture and Best Original Screenplay, thus further cementing Vallee's status as one of the most acclaimed Canadian filmmakers of his generation.
