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").
