Steven Spielberg

Empire of the Sun

25 Dec, 1987

Spielberg directs this historical film based on a J.G. Ballard novel. It details the experience of a young boy trying to survive on his own in Shanghai after the 1941 Japanese invasion. Christian Bale, John Malkovich, and Miranda Richardson star.

From the moment I read J. G. Ballard’s novel I secretly wanted to direct myself.
