Roman Polanski Cannes 2013
Roman Polanski was a film director, producer, writer, and actor. He was known for such films such as Knife in the Water, and Repulsion. Most of his movies were very polarizing, however. In 1977, Polanski made the tragic decent and raped a thirteen-year-old named Samantha Geimer in Jack Nicholson's house and fled the country and went to France, and he legally became a citizen.

During his time in France, he couldn't enter into any other countries due to an agreement with the United States, so he made films in France, though they were not as well-received as his previous works in the United States, which was a mixture of bad luck, and no one being willing enough to fund a movie that had an accused child rapist in the title. While at a ceremony, he was rearrested because of the warrant against him was increasing over the years. He had to finish post-production for one of his films in the prison. He was later released after the Swiss government turned down the extradition request on him.

Personal life

Polanski was born as Rajmund Roman Thierry Polanski in Paris, France, on August 18, 1933. He was born to Bula (a painter and sculptor), and Ryszard and he also had a sister. His parents were later taken to a concentration camp, and they both died there. He was later handed around by his family members.

He later fell in love with his co-star Sharon Tate, and they were married in 1968. Sadly, Sharon was murdered by The Family in 1969, on Charles Manson's orders. She was eight-and-a-half months pregnant with Polanski's child by the time she and four other people were murdered by Charles Manson and the Family. Polanski's movies became darker as a result of this senseless murder.
