The tragic story of world renowned classic cellist Jacqueline du Pré, as told from the point of view of her sister, flautist Hilary du Pré-Finzi.
Emily Watson actually learned to play the cello as a child so was a natural for the part of Jacqueline du Pré. She practiced so long and so intensively for the film that she would frequently make her fingers bleed.
Jackie du Pré:
Excuse me ladies and gentlemen, I have broken my A string
Jackie du Pré: at least it wasn't my G string.
When a Japanese newspaper is shown publicizing Jackie's performance, the headline above the photo actually reported that the Japanese budget had been approved by parliament.
