Jean-Marc Vallée, the Canadian director best known for his work on Matthew McConaughey drama Dallas Buyers Club, has died aged 58.
Vallée won a Director’s Guild of America award for Sharp Objects, as well as for his work on Big Little Lies.
Vallée was a director who attracted high-profile stars, seeking projects in which they could demonstrate their unvarnished acting chops – which often paid dividends during awards seasons.
Vallée followed that film with Wild, based on Cheryl Strayed’s 2012 backpacking memoir and starring Reese Witherspoon, with whom he reteamed on the first season of Big Little Lies in 2017.
