Life and career

Cattaneo was brought up in Twickenham, London, England. His father was a London-born animator of Italian descent.[3] After attending London College of Printing for an art foundation course, and Leeds Polytechnic for a BA in Graphic Design (Film), he graduated from the Royal College of Art in 1989, he was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Live Action Short Film for Dear Rosie (1990). He went on to make his feature film debut with The Full Monty (1997), which was a smash success both in the UK and internationally.[4] The comedy grossed £160,049,344 at the box office on a £3 million budget and was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Picture and the Academy Award for Best Director and won the Academy Award for Best Original Score by Anne Dudley.
