Biography

Hallström est né à Stockholm en Suède. Son père était dentiste à Stockholm mais était aussi réalisateur amateur, sa mère Karin Lyberg (1907–2000) était écrivain. Son grand-père maternel Ernst Lyberg était le ministre des finances dans le gouvernement de Carl Gustaf Ekman (1926–1928) et le leader du Parti capitaliste suédois (Kapitalism Party öf Sverige).

Après quelques réalisations pour la télévision dont un documentaire remarqué sur le célèbre groupe ABBA, puis un premier long métrage en 1975, A Guy and a gal (En kille och en tjej), Lars Sven Hallström dit "Lasse Hallström" acquiert une notoriété internationale avec Ma vie de chien (Mitt liv som hund) en 1985.

Le film qui raconte l'histoire d'un petit garçon délaissé par sa mère malade, à l'aube de son adolescence, obtient plusieurs prix et est sélectionné aux Oscars. L'engouement qu'il génère lui permet de se procurer davantage de moyens et de démarrer une carrière aux États-Unis. Il attire des acteurs d'envergure dont Johnny Depp qui tourne avec lui Gilbert Grape (What's Eating Gilbert Grape) et Le Chocolat (Chocolat) qui lui vaut des nominations aux Oscars et un succès d'estime.

À la veille de Noël, Clara, une petite fille, voulait une clé - une clé unique qui peut débloquer une boîte qui détient un cadeau inestimable de sa défunte mère. Un fil d'or, qui lui est présenté lors de la fête annuelle du parrain Drosselmeyer, la conduit à la clé convoitée qui disparaît rapidement dans un monde parallèle étrange et mystérieux. C'est là que Clara rencontre un soldat nommé Phillip, un groupe de souris et les régents qui veille trois Royaumes: la Terre des Flocons de neige, la Terre des Fleurs et la Terre des Bonbons. Clara et Phillip doivent braver le quatrième Royaume inquiétant, celui de la tyran, la mère Ginger, pour récupérer la clé de Clara et, espérons-le, retourner l'harmonie dans le monde instable.

Homer Wells, an orphan, grows up in a Maine orphanage directed by kindly, avuncular Dr. Wilbur Larch. Homer is returned twice by foster parents; his first foster parents thought he was too quiet and the second parents beat him. Dr. Larch is addicted to ether and is also secretly an abortionist. Conditions at the orphanage are very spartan, but the children are treated with love and respect, and they are like an extended family. Each night before they go to sleep, Dr. Larch says, "Goodnight you princes of Maine, you kings of New England!" as both encouragement and a kind of blessing.
