She gained wider international recognition in Sally Potter’s Orlando (1992), and won both the BAFTA and the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress for Tony Gilroy’s Michael Clayton (2007). She has received critical acclaim for performances in films including Judd Apatow’s Trainwreck (2015), Bong Joon-ho’s Snowpiercer (2013) and Okja (2017), Joel and Ethan Coen’s Burn After Reading (2008), Scott Derrickson’s Doctor Strange (2016), Luca Guadagnino’s I Am Love (2009) and Suspiria (2018), and Lynne Ramsay’s We Need to Talk About Kevin (2011), among many others. Swinton’s most recent work includes Wes Anderson’s The French Dispatch, Joanna Hogg’s The Souvenir: Part II, and Apichatpong Weerasethakul’s Memoria (all upcoming). The mother of twins, she lives in the Scottish Highlands.
