A screenwriter with an interestingly diverse group of credits to his name, Robert Nelson-Jacobs' maiden voyage into cinema was penning the Walter Matthau/Jack Lemmon grumpy old maritime comedy Out to Sea (1997). It was three years later, however, when Nelson-Jacobs began to find his stride. In 2000, with his screenplays for both Disney's highly anticipated CGI opus Dinosaur and for Chocolat -- director Lasse Hallstrom's follow-up to his widely praised The Cider House Rules (1999) -- Nelson-Jacobs began to gain greater recognition and continued to refine his uniquely humanistic style. Noted for its ironically anti-Darwinist story line, Dinosaur was treated gently by critics and warmly received by audiences, though it was Nelson-Jacob's adaptation of Joanne Harris' novel Chocolat that would captivate audiences and critics alike, earning him an Oscar nomination for Best Adapted Screenplay for the 2000 Academy Awards.
