TILDA SWINTON provides a moving portrait of suburban anguish in THE DEEP END, starring as Margaret Hall, a woman dragged deep into crime and corruption through her attempts to protect her family.
A native of Scotland, Swinton is best known for her galvanizing portrait of the title character in ORLANDO, Sally Potter's award-winning film based on Virginia Woolf s novel. Swinton and Potter worked for years together to bring this screen adaptation to life. The role won Swinton international accolades, including comparisons to Greta Gabo.
Prior to ORLANDO, Swinton collaborated with director Derek Jarman on eight films, including CARAVAGGIO, WAR REQUIEM and EDWARD II for which she was awarded the Coppa Volpe for Best Actress in the 1992 Venice Film Festival. Since then, Swinton has chosen a diverse range of projects, from the experimental CONCEIVING ADA to the daring FEMALE PERVERSIONS to last year's blockbuster Danny Boyle film THE BEACH with Leonardo DiCaprio. In the process, she has emerged as one of the most talented and fascinating actresses of her generation.
She will next appear in Spike Jonze's ADAPTATION with Nicholas Cage and Meryl Streep, then in Cameron Crowe's VANILLA SKY with Tom Cruise and Kurt Russell and subsequently in TEKNOLUST, an independent film directed by Lynn Hershmann who also directed Tilda in CONCEIVING ADA.
