David Helfgott in Shine
Geoffrey Rush gave a star turning performance as one time musical prodigy David Helfgott, whose career ended by severe mental illness brought about by years of foul treatment in his youth. Fortunately, Helfgott later overcame his illness to become both a popular and critical success. The film is inspiring and could squeeze a tear out of even the most coldhearted moviegoer.
