NEW YORK, Jan. 22 (UPI) -- Watching one's life play out on the big screen can help one better understand his own mistakes and triumphs, filmmaker Jim Sheridan said in New York.

"Everything you do in your life makes sense," said the director of "In America," the autobiographical film he wrote with his daughters.

"You get in a fight, you realize why you got there and why you said the stupid thing. Unless you see yourself with contradictions, you kind of are tied into a one-dimensional perspective on yourself," he explained.

The Writers Guild of America Thursday nominated Sheridan and his daughters Kirsten and Noami's screenplay for the best original screenplay award of 2003.
