Shine - Film

The true life story of piano virtuoso David Helfgott (Geoffrey Rush in an Academy Award winning performance), Shine captures a most remarkable journey in flashback, a personal tale of creative passion and musical achievement, celebrating the ineluctable power of human endearment. Pushed headfirst into the world of music by domineering father Peter, piano prodigy David is mentored by local teacher Ben Rosen to win the state musical championship. Invited to study with prominent musicians in America, David’s opportunities are stifled by his father, but supported by new-found friend and novelist Katherine Susannah Prichard. Offered a scholarship to the prestigious Royal College of Music, David faces one of the toughest piano recitals of his life in Rachmaninoff’s demanding Piano Concerto Number 3, a complex piece of music destined to not only challenge him to the edge of sanity but change his life forever. Shine is one of the most celebrated and successful movies in Australian film history.
