A leading figure in the Australian New Wave, the success of his early films such as Picnic At Hanging RocK (1975) and A Year of Living Dangerously (1983) led to Oscar-nominated works like WITNESS (1985) and THE TRUMAN SHOW (1998). Other key films include Dead Poets Society (1989), Fearless (1993) and Master & Commander (2003).
