Mendes For Lifetime Achievement Award

British film-maker SAM MENDES is to be honoured with Lifetime Achievement Award from the DIRECTORS GUILD OF GREAT BRITAIN - at the age of 39.

The OSCAR-winning director, who is married to KATE WINSLET, will be honoured at the Guild's second annual award ceremony in London next month (MAR05) - despite having only directed two Hollywood movies, AMERICAN BEAUTY and ROAD TO PERDITION.

Before launching his Hollywood career, Mendes was known in his native Britain as a successful theatre director.
