Shine is the compelling and poignant story of a young man who defies his father's wishes in order ot pursue his dreams. Both thought-provoking and powerful, it tells a story of rebellion and of individuality through the eyes of a pianist whose only form of self expression is found in the keys of his instrument.
Editor's Note
This acclaimed film paints a wrenching portrait of the life of Australian piano virtuoso David Helfgott and his struggles with his war-traumatized, demanding father; mental illness and asylum incarceration; and his obsession with the virtually unplayable Rachmaninoff Piano Concerto No. 3 ("Rach 3"). Academy Award Nominations: 7, including Best Picture, Best Director, Best Original Screenplay, and Best Supporting Actor--Armin Mueller-Stahl. Academy Awards: Best Actor--Geoffrey Rush.
