Mike Leigh and Simon Channing Williams first met back in 1980, when Simon was First Assistant Director on Mike’s BBC film Grown-Ups, starring Brenda Blethyn.

They hooked up again a few years later, when Simon co-produced The Short and Curlies (1987) and High Hopes (1988), both for Portman Productions.

Having by now forged a close personal and working relationship, it seemed natural for them to form their own company. And so Thin Man Films was born.

Thin Man has made eight successful feature films, Life is Sweet (1990), Naked (1993), Secrets & Lies (1996), Career Girls (1997), Topsy-Turvy (1999), All Or Nothing (2002), Vera Drake (2004) and Happy-Go-Lucky (2008).

Secrets & Lies and Topsy-Turvy had nine Oscar nominations between them, Topsy-Turvy winning two. In 1994, Naked won Best Director and Best Actor at Cannes, where two years later Secrets & Lies won the Palme d’Or and Best Actress. I won The Golden Lion and the Best Actress at Venice in 2004, as well as six BIFA’s, 3 BAFTA’s including Best Director, and three Oscar nominations

Thin Man is responsible for the forthcoming ten-disc DVD Mike Leigh Box Set, comprising seven of the Thin Man features, plus Bleak Moments (1971), Meantime, (1984) and, High Hopes. Details of the box set will be seen here first, so check back for more information soon.
