Amadeus - Director's Cut
is 1781, and Antonio Salieri is the competent court composer to Emperor
Joseph II. When Amadeus Mozart arrives at court, Salieri is horrified
to discover that the godlike musical gifts he desires for himself have
been bestowed on a bawdy, impish jokester. Mad with envy, he plots to
destroy Mozart by any means. Perhaps, even murder. Starring: F. Murray
Abraham, Tom Hulce, Jeffrey Jones, Roy Dotrice, Simon Callow, Elizabeth
Berridge and Christine Ebersole. Winner of eight Academy Awards.
