Peter Weir was born in Sydney, Australia, in 1944. He has directed countless movies, but was not widely known internationally before his movie "Witness" from 1995. His popularity rose in 1989 with his movie "Dead Poets Society" featuring Robin Williams as a likeable professor. Throughout the 1990s, he only made a few movies, including "Green Card" and "The Truman Show", which had Jim Carrey in the lead role. In 2003, he joined forces with fellow Australian Russell Crowe to produce the epic drama "Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World", which was a major commercial and critical success. Besides Russell Crowe, the film also featured British actor Paul Bettany.
