Shine is the true story of pianist David Helfgott, his turbulent relationship with his father, his breakdown and eventual redemption through the love of his wife, Gillian.This is a story rich in music and emotion, produced by Jane Scott and directed by Scott Hicks with visual elegance from a brilliant screenplay by Jan Sardi. The cast, led by Geoffrey Rush as the adult David and Noah Taylor as the adolescent David, give career-best performances. The film is an especially fine celebration of the work of four screen legends, Armin Mueller-Stahl, Lynn Redgrave, Googie Withers and John Gielgud.
