There Will Be Blood is a 2007 American epic drama film written and directed by Paul Thomas Anderson. The film was inspired by Upton Sinclair's 1927 novel Oil! but is too different to be considered an adaptation. It tells the story of a silver miner-turned-oilman on a ruthless quest for wealth during Southern California's oil boom of the late 19th and early 20th centuries. It stars Daniel Day-Lewis, Paul Dano, and Dillon Freasier. The film received significant critical praise and numerous award nominations and victories. It premiered at the Berlin International Film Festival where it won the Silver Bear Award for Best Director and a Special Artistic Contribution Award for Jonny Greenwood's score. It appeared on many critics' "top ten" lists for the year, notably the American Film Institute, the National Society of Film Critics, the National Board of Review, and the Los Angeles Film Critics Association. Day-Lewis won Oscar, BAFTA, Golden Globe, Screen Actors Guild, NYFCC and IFTA Best Actor awards for his performance.
