Ronald Harwood

Writer, 'Diving Bell,' 'Love in the Time of Cholera'

Born in South Africa from Lithuanian-Jewish lineage, Londoner Harwood has become one of the go-to scribes for literary adaptations. He already boasts an Oscar for “The Pianist” and a prior nom for “The Dresser,” and this year weighs in with two screenplays: “The Diving Bell and the Butterfly,” from the book dictated by paralyzed French journo Jean-Dominique Bauby, and “Love in the Time of Cholera,” from the novel by Nobel Prize winner Gabriel Garcia Marquez. The pair are contrasting challenges, one a memoir of a man trapped in his body, the other a sprawling love story playing out over decades. Harwood handles each with aplomb.
