Background and education[edit] Lonergan was born in The Bronx, New York City
New York City
to a psychiatrist mother and physician father. His mother is Jewish, and his father was of Irish descent.[1][2] Lonergan began writing in high school at the Walden School (a now defunct, highly progressive private school in Manhattan
Manhattan
with a strong drama program).[citation needed] His first play, The Rennings Children, was chosen for the Stephen Sondheim-founded Young Playwrights, Inc. Young Playwright's Festival in 1982 while he was still an undergraduate. Lonergan matriculated to Wesleyan University
Wesleyan University
where he trained as a playwright and director;[3] he would go on to graduate at the NYU Playwriting Program. Government and commercial work[edit] After graduating from NYU, Lonergan worked as a speechwriter for the Environmental Protection Agency. He also wrote industrial shows—long-play commercials—for clients such as Weight Watchers[4] and Fujifilm. Career[edit] Stage[edit] Lonergan's first theatrical success came with the play This Is Our Youth (1996); it was followed by The Waverly Gallery (1999), based on his grandmother's Greenwich Village
Greenwich Village
gallery, and later Lobby Hero (2002). His play The Starry Messenger premiered Off-Broadway in 2009 and starred his wife J. Smith-Cameron
J. Smith-Cameron
and Matthew Broderick.[5] Film[edit] Lonergan's film career began with his screenplay for the gangland comedy Analyze This
Analyze This
(1999). He was subsequently offered a job writing The Adventures of Rocky and Bullwinkle
The Adventures of Rocky and Bullwinkle
(2000). Lonergan directed his own screenplay for You Can Count On Me
You Can Count On Me
(2000); the film, which was executive produced by Martin Scorsese, went on to receive and be nominated for numerous writing awards.[6] He contributed to the screenplay for Gangs of New York (2002). In 2005, filming took place for his second film as writer/director, Margaret, starring Anna Paquin, Matt Damon, Matthew Broderick, and J. Smith-Cameron. The film spent over five years in post-production, with Lonergan, the producers and various editors unable to agree on its final cut, resulting in multiple legal disputes. It was finally released in 2011.[1] Margaret ranked 31st in a 2016 BBC
BBC
poll of the 21st century's greatest films.[7] Lonergan wrote and directed Manchester by the Sea, which was released in 2016 to critical acclaim.[8] He also had a small part in the film, as a pedestrian. David Fear of Rolling Stone
Rolling Stone
said the film proves that Lonergan is "practically peerless in portraying loss as a living, breathing thing without resorting to the vocabulary of griefporn."[9] Lonergan also wrote the BBC/ Starz
Starz
miniseries Howards End.[10] Personal life[edit] Lonergan is married to actress J. Smith-Cameron. They have one daughter, Nellie.[11][12] Credits[edit] Stage[edit]
