Biography

Actress Leelee Sobieski made her screen debut in her early teens, but avoided typically lightweight high school fare; instead earning a reputation for sophisticated, emotionally mature roles in serious dramas. Before the age of 20, she had worked with legendary director Stanley Kubrick in "Eyes Wide Shut" (1999) and carried the weight of earnest historical dramas "Joan of Arc" (CBS, 1999) and the holocaust-set "Uprising" (2001). Her admirable decision to pursue an Ivy League education broke her solid run of acclaimed work, and when she returned to theaters she pursued her interest in portraying smart, independent women. Her post-college films roles were generally low budget, film festival fare, but she also surfaced in the occasional mainstream offering like "The Wicker Man" (2006) and "Public Enemies" (2009), while seeking the right niche to carry her into the next phase of her career.
