At a Glance
The movie Amadeus is a screen triumph; a sumptuous period epic, a soaring celebration of the music of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. Winner of eight Academy Awards®, Amadeus tells the story of Vienna court composer, Antonio Salieri (F. Murray Abraham) and the envy that consumes him upon discovering that the divine musical gifts he has so longed for all his life have been bestowed on a bawdy, vulgar, and impish young composer, Mozart (Tom Hulce). Salieri’s envy fuels his plot to destroy the man, while all the while unable to tear himself away from the genius of his music.
“About as close to perfection as movies get.” (USA Today)
