Born in 1956 to a working-class Irish Catholic family in Lancashire, England, Boyle decided against the priesthood and turned instead to drama. He made his feature-film directorial debut with Shallow Grave, which became the the most commercially successful British film of 1995. This and his adaptation of the Irvine Welsh novelTrainspotting were credited with revitalizing cinema in Britain. In 2008 he directed Slumdog Millionaire, the story of an impoverished child on the streets of Mumbai who competes on India's variant of Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?The film won a directorial Oscar for Boyle and eight Academy Awards in total.
