Frank Cottrell-Boyce


UK flag (1959 - )

Frank Cottrell Boyce is a screenwriter whose films include Welcome to Sarajevo, Hilary and Jackie, 24 Hour Party People, and Millions, which was also his first book. Framed was inspired by a news story he'd read in an old scrapbook: During the Second World War, a collection of valuable paintings from the National Gallery was hidden in a slate mine for safekeeping. He couldn't resist imagining how all of that great art might have affected the people who lived near the mine. Mr. Cottrell Boyce lives with his wife and seven children in Liverpool, England.
