Angela wrote her first manuscript at the age of 19 while modelling in Paris.
She later adapted her first novel into the film, Tumbleweeds. Tumbleweeds won the filmmaker’s trophy at the Sundance Film Festival and brought the lead actress, Janet McTeer, an Academy Award nomination and a Golden Globe win.
She has written screenplays and teleplays for Showtime, Sony Classics and Canal + and received outstanding reviews for her screen adaptation of Kaye Gibbon’s novel Charms for the Easy Life for Showtime, starring Gena Rowlands and Mimi Rogers.
…The real charm here isn’t the rabbit’s foot but the work of Angela Shelton, who turned the historic novel by Kaye Gibbons into a witty and engaging teleplay filled with sparkle, the right amount of sentimentality and some truly memorable performances.
