Richard LaGravenese’s Journey To Success As Writer, Director

Posted Feb. 28, 2015, 8:41 am

Ask the average movie buff if he or she knows who Richard LaGravenese is and the answer is probably going to be no. In the same sentence add that he wrote “Behind the Candelabra,” “Water for Elephants,” “P.S. I Love You,” “Freedom Writers,” “Paris, je t’aime,” “Beloved,” “The Horse Whisperer,” “The Mirror Has Two Faces,” “The Bridges of Madison County,” “A Little Princess,” “The Ref,” “Erin Brockovich,” “The Fisher King,” and “Rude Awakening.” Then, of course, the light goes on, as LaGravenese’s body of work is immediately recognizable as he written some of the most emotionally profound Hollywood scripts.
