Sad movie news to start the day:
Oscar-winning director Anthony Minghella has died, his agent Judy Daish announced this morning. He was 54 years old and no cause of death has been given.
Minghella directed the The English Patient, which won nine Academy Awards. He was also behind the camera for The Talented Mr. Ripley and Cold Mountain.
The director is survived by his wife Carolyn Choa and 22-year-old son Max Minghella, who most recently filmed Hippie Hippie Shake.
