Art and Film Historian Jill Kiefer will introduce each movie, and lead a discussion that will separate fact from fiction following each film.
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (Tom Hulce) is a remarkably talented young Viennese composer who unwittingly finds a fierce rival in the disciplined and determined Antonio Salieri (F. Murray Abraham). Resenting Mozart for both his hedonistic lifestyle and his undeniable talent, the highly religious Salieri is gradually consumed by his jealousy and becomes obsessed with Mozart's downfall, leading to a devious scheme that has dire consequences for both men. Stars F. Murray Abraham, Tom Hulce, and Elizabeth Berridge. Directed by Milos Forman.
