Overview
Now seen in a revitalized digital transfer and including more than 20 minutes worth of scenes not seen in its original release, Amadeus remains a screen triumph: as sumptuous period epic, soaring celebration of the music of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, a Top-100 Films selection by the American Film Institute and as the winner of eight 1984 Academy Awards®,* including Best Picture (produced by Saul Zaentz), Actor (F. Murray Abraham), Director (Milos Forman) and Adapted Screenplay (Peter Shaffer, from his play).

In 1781 Vienna, court composer Antonio Salieri (Abraham) is maddened with envy after discovering that the divine musical gifts he desires for himself have been bestowed on the bawdy, impish Mozart (Tom Hulce), whom he plots to destroy by any means necessary. And by means of cinematic craft and sublime music, we watch spellbound.

*1984: Best Picture, Best Actor, Best Director, Best Screenplay (Based on material from another medium), Best Art Direction, Best Costume Design, Best Makeup, Best Sound.
