As a child piano prodigy, David Helfgott's musical ambitions generate friction with his overbearing father, Peter. When Helfgott travels to London on a musical scholarship, his career as a pianist blossoms. However, the pressures of his newfound fame, coupled with the echoes of his tumultuous childhood, conspire to bring his latent schizophrenia boiling to the surface. He spends years in and out of various mental institutions until he is helped by the woman he eventually marries. Helfgott’s extraordinary life is intelligently charted in this beautifully moving film.

Music and Film series

Music has long been used in film to help create drama, including creation of mood, suspense, and portrayal of characters. However, each of the films in this series focuses on music as a central theme, as a unifying biographical element, as a motivating force. These films have been chosen to complement our Autumn concerts – Romantic Piano and Virtuoso Violin.
