A former stage director, Briton Mike Newell has always brought a touch of high theatrics to his films, but never so much as to make them seem stagebound. Newell's breakthrough film Dance with a Stranger (1985), a style-conscious retelling of the notorious Ruth Ellis murder case (she was the last woman executed in England), brought full stardom to British actress Miranda Richardson, while the director's Enchanted April (1992), also with Richardson, ended up a surprise moneymaker in the US. Sometimes Newell's larger-than-life approach comes a cropper, as witness the fuzzy-headed allegory Amazing Grace and Chuck (1987) and the confusing fantasy overtones in Into the West (1993). In 1994, Mike Newell made up for past missteps with Four Weddings and A Funeral, which outgrossed Enchanted April (and practically everything else) at the box office and was nominated for an Academy Award.
