«Shine» is a 1996 drama. A richly deserved Oscar went to Geoffrey Rush for his riveting portrayal of Australian virtuoso David Helfgott and his ultimate triumph over a domineering father (Armin Mueller-Stahl, who also earned Academy honors for his supporting turn); schizophrenia; and an obsession with the Rachmaninoff Piano Concerto No. 3. Sir John Gielgud, superb as ever, plays Helfgott's tutor, with Lynn Redgrave co-starring as Helfgott's future wife. «Shine» directed by Scott Hicks. Hurry up to download «Shine»!

Enthralling movie about the life of David Helfgott. Standout performance by Geoffrey Rush who thoroughly deserved his Best Actor award. Very entertaining.

Geoffrey Rush is brilliant in this film as an unstable musician who is one of the finest in his generation. Totally absorbing.

5/1009 October 2011

FIY: The ending was cut short by 10 minutes on my High Quality DIVX version.

Fairly good movie, good actors and an interesting plot. Circles a lot around family, growing up and learning about life.
