Biography

Scott Hicks est né en Ouganda d'un père anglais ingénieur et d'une mère écossaise, étant le plus jeune parmi leurs quatre enfants. Après une enfance qui se déroule principalement à Nairobi, il déménage avec sa famille en Australie à l'âge de 14 ans. De ces déménagements successifs à travers plusieurs continents, le réalisateur affirme en avoir tiré un regard d'"outsider" sachant les différences présentes d'un côté comme de l'autre. Il découvre vraiment le cinéma à l'université d'Adélaïde où il décide d'en faire son métier. Là bas il rencontre également sa future épouse Kerry Heysen, plus âgée, et ayant déjà un enfant.
Après le succès de Shine il a continué de vivre près d'Adelaïde où il possède d'ailleurs des vignes avec sa femme. On peut voir son vin en clin d'œil dans son film Le Goût de la vie. Outre le cinéma il s'intéresse également à la photographie et a exposé déjà trois fois. En 2007 Scott Hicks est sur la liste des finalistes au titre d'australien de l'année.
