Born February 25, 1950 in County Sligo, Ireland in the family of a professor.
After graduating from the University of Dublin with a degree in Irish History and English Literature, Jordan publishes a collection of stories, A Night in Tunisia (1976) and writes the novel The Past (1980) .
Jordan begins his film career as a co-writer of the film "Excalibur" by John Burman.
In 1982, Jordan's debut film, Angel, was released - a crime thriller based on his own script.
The following "black" film adaptation of the fairy tale about Little Red Riding Hood "In the Company of the Wolves" brings Jordan several awards from the London Critics Circle and international recognition.
The love-crime drama "Mona Lisa" once again brings Jordan cinematic awards: nominations for "Palme d'Or" and "Oscars" and many prestigious awards for the leading actor Bob Hoskins.
In the wake of his success, Jordan is filming two comedies in Hollywood with the stars of the first magnitude - "Supreme Spirits" ("Spiritual Peep") and "We Are Not Angels" .
Back in England, Jordan directed the teenage drama Miracle, which had little success at film festivals.
Released in 1992, the film "Cruel Game" ("Outrageous Game") receives brilliant criticism.
