Rarely does a film come along that so illuminates the strength of the human spirit and the triumph of the heart. Shine is the compelling and poignant story of a young man who defies his father's wishes in order to pursue his dreams. Both thought-provoking and powerful, it tells a story of rebellion and of individuality through the eyes of a pianist whose only form of self-expression is found in the keys of his instrument.

[Helfgott's] extraordinary life is intelligently charted here, and the three actors who play him at different stages are all exceptional.
