Saul Dibb (né en 1968 à Londres) est un réalisateur et scénariste britannique.

Biography

Fils du documentariste Mike Dibb, Saul Dibb débute sa carrière comme directeur de la photographie sur Tottenham Ayatollah de Jon Ronson en 1997, consacré aux fondamentalistes musulmans en Grande-Bretagne.

Puis il se fait lui aussi connaître comme réalisateur de documentaires.

Il filme la star du porno british Violet Storm dans Easy Money (2003), des parents d'enfants kidnappés dans Abducted, une série de films sur la vie urbaine à Brixton dans Electric Avenue, et des voleurs à l'étalage dans la série Lifters.

Il attire ensuite l'attention avec son premier long métrage, le drame urbain Bullet Boy sortit en 2004 avec Ashley Walters et Leon Black, qui plonge dans une spirale de violence au cœur de la classe populaire et défavorisée anglaise.

En 2006 Dibb opère un changement de cap avec la mini série télévisée The Line of Beauty, chronique amoureuse, sexuelle, sociale et existentielle dans l'Angleterre thatchérienne des années 1980, avec les étoiles montantes Dan Stevens, Hayley Atwell, Alex Wyndham et Oliver Coleman.

Puis il plonge dans l'aristocratie et les étoffes de la fin du 18 siècle avec The Duchess (2008), portrait d'une jeune femme avant-gardiste incarnée par Keira Knightley, avec Ralph Fiennes et Charlotte Rampling. Ce film l'ouvre au grand public et à l'audience internationale.

En 2013 il s'attelle à l'adaptation de Suite française d'Irène Némirovsky , roman retraçant l'histoire d'amour entre une jeune française et un officier nazi durant l'occupation allemande, avec Michelle Williams et Matthias Schoenaerts. Le tournage du film débutera en juin 2013 en Europe.

Set in the late 18th century, the story follows the life of Georgiana Cavendish, Duchess of Devonshire. Well known for her beauty and fashion sense, she is also remembered for her extravagance and gambling habits. Despite the blatant infidelities of her husband, the cold and much older William Cavendish, the 5th Duke of Devonshire, Georgiana thrives, becoming a fashion icon, a doting mother, a shrewd political operator, and darling of the common people. In befriending Lady Bess Foster, Georgiana is crushed when Bess and The Duke begin an affair. Despite Georgiana's anger, the Duke wants Bess to remain living with them. Bess later explains to Georgiana that the reason she began the affair with the Duke was so that she could get her children back. The Duke wants a male heir, which the Duchess has not yet provided. The idea is that Bess can, since she already has three sons, of whom the Duke is very fond, treating them as if they were his own.
