Hollywood Animal




'Eszterhas is a wonderful storyteller, and HOLLYWOOD ANIMAL is irresistibly entertaining. The gods look down, and we look up, dazzled by the light' Guardian.

He spent his earliest years in post-World War Two refugee camps. He came to America and grew up in Cleveland - stealing cars, rolling drinks, battling priests, nearly going to jail. He became the screenwriter of the world-wide hits BASIC INSTINCT, JAGGED EDGE and FLASHDANCE. He also wrote the legendary disasters SHOWGIRLS and JADE. The rebellion never ended, even as his films went on to gross more than a billion dollars at the box office and he became the most famous - or infamous - screenwriter in Hollywood.
