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.
If you think being an ordinary person is any easier than being an extraordinary one, you're wrong.
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.
