Webber swiftly gained acclaim with his directorial debut, "Girl with a Pearl Earring," starring Scarlett Johansson, Colin Firth, and Tom Wilkinson, earning him nominations for almost all major film awards, including three Oscar nods. His works also include "Hannibal Rising" featuring Gaspard Ulliel, Rhys Ifans, and Gong Li, "Emperor" with Tommy Lee Jones partly shot in Japan, and the critically acclaimed series "Six Feet Under," marking just a fraction of his illustrious career.
