Hilary and Jackie


Based on the true story of two sisters who were both classical musicians. They competed with each other for fame and glory. One went on to world tours, the other gracefully retired to a rural life. Then tragedy struck - one develops a fatal disease, and turns to her sister as her only comfort. A tear jerker for women, I suppose.
