Brazilian screenwriter Bráulio Mantovani wrote the script for the short film Palace II, directed by Fernando Meirelles in 2001. But it was their partnership a year later, on the critically acclaimed film City of God, which earned him Hollywood cred. Mantovani garnered an Academy Award nomination for Best Adapted Screenplay for penning the Portuguese script from the 1997 novel of the same name, written by Paulo Lins.

She's a pop culture junkie who watches way too much television, and she still hoards magazines.
