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.
SHINE swept the pool of local awards in 1996, winning nine AFI Awards. The following year SHINE became an international phenomenon scoring seven Oscar® nominations, five Golden Globe nominations and nine BAFTA nominations amongst many other international awards. After Geoffrey Rush was awarded an Oscar, a Golden Globe and a BAFTA for Best Actor, his acting career was completely transformed.
