Danny Boyle made his big-screen directorial debut with Shallow Grave but was launched into the spotlight with his next effort, Trainspotting. The film gave audiences a look at drug use among a group of Scotsmen. Boyle later returned to acclaim with the zombie classic 28 Days Later, and cemented his status as one of the finest filmmakers around in 2008 with Slumdog Millionaire, which went on to win eight Oscars, and 127 Hours in 2010, which was nominated for six.
