Director. Born on September 21, 1957, in Minneapolis, Minnesota. After studying philosophy at Princeton University, Ethan and his brother Joel began writing their first screenplays. The brothers made their screen debut in 1984 with the Texas-set noir Blood Simple, the first of many films dedicated to a particularly eccentric, ironic, darkly comic and often violent style. The film received critical acclaim and established the brothers as fresh, original talent.

In 1987, the duo released the comedy Raising Arizona, a light-hearted diversion and a huge box office success. In the early 1990s, the Coens made numerous films, including Miller’s Crossing (1990), Barton Fink (1991), and Hudsucker Proxy (1994). Although the latter film was a relative disappointment, it was followed by the brothers’ most ambitious and successful film to date, the extremely dark comedy Fargo (1996). For their work, the Coens jointly won the Oscar for Best Original Screenplay. Frances McDormand, who had married Joel in 1984, won another Oscar for Best Actress for the film.

In 1998 they released The Big Lebowski, for which Joel received a Golden Bear nomination at the Berlin Film Festival. In 2000, they released O Brother, Where Art Thou? which was loosely based on Homer’s Odyssey and starred George Clooney and John Turturro. In the summer of 2003, the brothers teamed up with Tom Hanks and Marlon Wayans for the remake of the 1955 British bandit comedy Ladykillers.

In their next project, Ethan and Joel Coen contributed a segment called “Tuileries” to the 2006 film Paris, je t’aime, which explored the City of Light through individual stories in different neighbourhoods. The Coen brothers took a completely different direction with the traditional western No Country for Old Men (2007), in which Tommy Lee Jones as a Texas sheriff pursues a ruthless hit man played by Javier Bardem.

Josh Brolin played a local man who discovered money in a drug deal gone bad and was eventually pursued by Bardem. The film earned the two much critical praise and several award nominations. In February 2008, those nominations turned into three Academy Awards for the Coen brothers. They took home the awards for Best Director, Best Picture and Best Adapted Screenplay.
