About the Movie
Nominated for eleven Academy Awards and winner of eight, including Best Picture, Director and Actor, this lavish story, based upon a Viennese urban legend and hit Broadway play, recounts the downfall of 18th-century musical genius Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart as orchestrated by his nemesis, the less talented but politically favored Antonin Salieri. Starring Academy Award-winner F. Murray Abraham ("Thirteen Ghosts," "Finding Forrester"), Academy Award-nominee Tom Hulce ("Frankenstein," "Fearless"), Simon Callow ("Notting Hill," "Shakespeare in Love"), Golden Globe-nominated Jeffrey Jones ("Sleepy Hollow," "The Devil's Advocate") and Elizabeth Berridge (TV's "The John Larroquette Show"). Directed by Oscar-winner Milos Forman ("Man on the Moon," "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest").

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: As Mozart, Tom Hulce, though extremely American in looks and voice, gets better and better as the drama progresses.
Fresh: A grand movie entertainment.
Fresh: On a production level and as an evocation of a time and place, Amadeus is loaded with pleasures.
Fresh: The subject of artistic creation is typically handled badly in the movies.... [Amadeus] treats the subject of creativity in a fresh way.
F.Murry Abraham, Tom Hulce put on a performance that will show you how "great movies" are made.
Thank you, Apple. I've been waiting for years to experience this movie again. Thanks for "listening!"
