LARCHMONT, N.Y. -- Happy Birthday to Larchmont’s Ang Lee!

Ang Lee, who lives in Larchmont, turns 60 on Thursday.

Lee, a film director, screenwriter and producer, was born Oct. 23, 1954, in Chaochou, Pingtung, Taiwan. He deals with repressed, hidden emotions in many of his films, including "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon"; "Hulk"; and "Brokeback Mountain." Lee's insight into the human heart has allowed his films to transcend cultural and linguistic barriers to speak to audiences all over the world.

Lee has won the Academy Award for Best Director twice, first for "Brokeback Mountain" (2005) and "Life of Pi" (2012). He also won the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film for "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon" (2000). He is the first person of Asian descent to win an Oscar, Golden Globe and BAFTA for Best Director, and the only director to win two Best Film Awards at the Berlin International Film Festival.
