Fans of contemporary prestige filmmaking are familiar with brothers Christopher and Jonathan Nolan, who have co-written films including "The Prestige," "The Dark Knight" (with David S. Goyer) and "Interstellar" — all of which were directed by Christopher. The two brothers have also worked independently: Christopher has directed multiple films that he wrote solo, including "Inception," "Dunkirk" and "Tenet." Jonathan Nolan has created TV series such as "Person of Interest," "Westworld" and "Fallout" (the latter two with Lisa Joy).
However, most people are probably not aware that there is a third brother in the Nolan family, and his fame (to the degree that he has it) does not come from the entertainment industry. Matthew Nolan, the eldest of the Nolan brothers, has quite a checkered past. Here is his unusual story.
