More Description

Already being hailed by critics as the best movie of the year, Shine is an original and moving story of the destructive and redeeming power of love.

Screened at Sundance Film Festival to a standing ovation, opened in Australia to enormous acclaim, and published to coincide with the American release, Shine -- starring Lynn Redgrave and Sir John Gielguld -- is winning accolades all around the world. "At last " Steven Spielberg exclaims. "A great movie "

Shine is the true story of David Helfgott, a brilliant Australian pianist whose musical gift is nearly compromised by the emotional strain of his personal life. A child prodigy whose interpretive genius promised a brilliant career as a concert pianist, David grew up under the tyrannical parenting of his father. Their turbulent relationship almost destroys David's promise and threatens to upset his fragile mental balance. An unlikely romance brings stability to David's chaotic world, and he returns to concert performance in triumph. Freed from the difficult legacy of his father's influence, his musical talent prevails. "Extraordinary What is genius and what is madness and what happens when the line between the two blurs? These questions are probed with sophistication, candor, and compassion.... Exhilarating ... Bravo". -- Cosmopolitan
