Jacqueline du Prė was the leading cellist of her generation. But at the height of her fame, she was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. Still controversial because it was based on the one-sided biography by du Prė's siblings, Frank Cottrell Boyce's script provided the basis for a scintillating performance by Emily Watson in the central role.

of the joys and tribulations of being a classical musician ever filmed.
