Hilary and Jackie
1998
***½
Director: Anand Tucker
Cast: Emily Watson, Rachel Griffiths, James Frain, David Morrissey

A solid true-life drama about two musical sisters, Hilary and Jacqueline Du Pre, the last of who became a world famous cellist whose career was cut short by a crippling illness. Personal and professional stories come together in a non-linear structure, where character behaviour at first seems irrational and even infuriating, but eventually makes sense. Strong performances by the two female leads.
