Rowan Marc Joffé (born 1973)[1] is a British screenwriter and director. He is the son of director Roland Joffé and actress Jane Lapotaire, and half-brother of actress Nathalie Lunghi.

Joffé's first two screenwriting projects (Last Resort and Gas Attack) both won the Best New British Feature Award at the Edinburgh International Film Festival. He directed The Shooting of Thomas Hurndall which won the Best Single Drama Award at the 2009 BAFTA TV Awards.[2]

In 2009 Joffé directed his first feature film - his own adaptation of the novel Brighton Rock which relocates the action to the 1960s[3] - and is developing an adaptation of A Very Private Gentleman by Martin Booth.[4]

In 2011 it was announced that Joffé's next project would be an adaptation of the S.J. Watson novel Before I Go to Sleep,[5] which set with Nicole Kidman in the lead.[6]
