Shine is a semi-biographical movie about Austrian pianist David Helfgott and his life long goal to make his father proud of his amazing musical talent. Growing up both my sister and I took piano lessons and my grandfather performed regularly with his accordion. While I quit piano at age 12, my sister continued to practice and ended up going to college for music. As a result of my upbringing and love of music, I really looked forward to and enjoyed this movie.
