ROB REINER (Director/ Actor) has directed some of the most popular and influential motion pictures of the past two decades, deftly moving among many styles. He has created films that win both audience enthusiasm and critical acclaim.
The versatile filmmaker has been immersed in the entertainment business for much of his life, succeeding first as an actor then as a director and producer. He performed in many television and feature productions (including his Emmy-winning work as a star of the long-running hit television series All in the Family) before finding success as a director with the acclaimed "rockumentary" comedy This is Spinal Tap in 1984. He followed with the road comedy The Sure Thing and the adaptation of Stephen King's youth adventure Stand By Me. The latter film brought him his first nomination as Best Director from the Directors Guild of America. The Princess Bride, adapted by William Goldman from his book, followed in 1986 and has since become a beloved classic.
Reiner's succession of box office hits include When Harry Met Sally..., Misery, A Few Good Men, The American President and Ghosts of Mississippi.
