Winner of the Best Original Screenplay, Australian Writers' Guild Award, 1996. Lost and confused during a rainstorm, an eccentric vagrant stumbles into a restaurant and proceeds to captivate and delight everyone with his amusing, incessant chatter. Thus David Helfgott rushed in from the emotional storm he had weathered for three decades, back into the public spotlight he was always destined to occupy. A former child prodigy whose interpretive genius promised a brilliant career as a concert pianist, he suffered a devastating breakdown in his early twenties. In the years of obscurity and loneliness which followed, he lived in a twilight world without music. But then came that fateful night at the restaurant. David sat down at the piano by the bar and showed the world his gift was far from dead... "Jan Sardi has done a terrific job of transforming Helfgott's life story into a smartly-paced, intriguing kaleidoscope." - Film Journal International. "One of the year's best films. It's brilliant, electrifying acting and film making." - Boston Globe. "A fast-paced, compelling narrative... Top-notch performances... Geoffrey Rush is quite remarkable." - Variety.
