ISLE OF DOGS

GRETA GERWIG (TRACY WALKER) has rapidly emerged as one of Hollywood's most engaging actresses, screenwriters, and directors. Gerwig wrote and directed the Golden Globe winning film LADY BIRD, which also recently garnered five Oscar nominations for Best Picture, Best Director, Best Original Screenplay, Best Actress in a Leading Role, and Best Supporting Actress. The film appeared on over 300 "Top Ten" lists in 2017, was awarded "Best Picture" from the New York Film Critics Circle and Gerwig received "Best Director" honors from the National Board of Review. In addition, Gerwig has been nominated for Best Director from the Director's Guild of America, as well as for Best Original Screenplay from the Writers Guild of America.

As an actress, Gerwig was last seen in 20th CENTURY WOMEN alongside Annette Bening and Elle Fanning from director Mike Mills. Gerwig received a Critics' Choice Award nomination in the category of "Best Supporting Actress" for her portrayal of "Abbie," a photographer who is being treated for cervical cancer. Last year, Gerwig also starred in Pablo Larrain's JACKIE alongside Natalie Portman and Peter Sarsgaard; Todd Solondz's WIENERDOG opposite Danny DeVito, Ellen Burstyn, and Kieran Culkan; and Rebecca Miller's romantic dramedy MAGGIE'S PLAN opposite Ethan Hawke and Julianne Moore.

In 2015, Gerwig starred in MISTRESS AMERICA, a comedy that she co-wrote with director Noah Baumbach, which premiered to rave reviews at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival. Gerwig's previous collaboration with Baumbach, FRANCES HA, earned her Golden Globe and Broadcast Film Critics Association Award nominations in the category of "Outstanding Lead Actress in a Motion Picture, Musical or Comedy." The film, which also earned an Independent Spirit Award nomination for "Best Feature," premiered at the 2012 Telluride Film Festival, Toronto Film Festival, and New York Film Festival.

Gerwig first received critical acclaim for her breakout role as "Florence" in GREENBERG, which marked her first collaboration with writer/director Noah Baumbach. In the film, she starred opposite Ben Stiller and her performance earned her several nominations including a Gotham Award nomination for "Breakthrough Performance" and an Independent Spirit Award nomination for "Best Female Lead."

Other film credits include Barry Levinson's THE HUMBLING opposite Al Pacino and Dianne Wiest; ARTHUR opposite Russell Brand and Helen Mirren; the romantic comedy NO STRINGS ATTACHED with Natalie Portman and Ashton Kutcher; Whit Stillman's comedy DAMSELS IN DISTRESS; and Fox Searchlight's LOLA VERSUS. A darling of the independent film scene, Gerwig's prior credits include Ti West's "art-house horror film" HOUSE OF THE DEVIL; the Duplass brothers' genre-bender BAGHEAD; Joe Swanberg's HANNAH TAKES THE STAIRS as a writer and actress, and NIGHTS AND WEEKENDS which she co-wrote and co-directed.

Gerwig graduated Magna Cum Laude from Barnard College and currently resides in New York City.
