There is little doubt that 'Shine' was the surprise international hit of 1996, receiving 7 Oscar nominations, collecting the 'Best Actor' statuette for Geoffrey Rush's moving portrayal of the brilliant, but wildly eccentric, Australian pianist David Helfgott, a real-life tortured genius. This is a must-see film, particularly for the quality of the concert footage.
