The director began working on Canadian music videos and short films, before making his feature film debut with the French-language film “Black List”, also known by its English title “Black List”.

His groundbreaking film in the United States was “Dallas Buyers Club,” the 2013 film based on the true story of an AIDS patient who becomes a distributor of experimental treatments. Although Vallée’s achievement was not recognized by the Academy, the film was nominated for Best Picture, while stars Matthew McConaughey and Jared Leto both won Oscars for their performances.

Vallée entered television production in 2017 as executive producer of the HBO drama “Big Little Lies”. He also directed the entire first season of the series, winning an Emmy. Vallée then produced the “Sharp Objects” series, also for HBO, and directed each episode. Vallée and Ross signed a new development agreement with HBO in April, according to Deadline.
