Period and Historical
This fascinating French period drama draws upon historical accounts to shine a rare light on the other child genius in the Mozart family, Wolfgang’s elder sister Nannerl. Despite her natural musical talent, her father dismisses her composing ambitions as being “beyond women”. Male-dominated academies similarly refuse to let her passion breathe and so she is relegated to merely providing backing piano for Wolfgang. Nannerl looks set to play second fiddle to her brother forever until a meeting with the King’s son ensures her exceptional work no longer lays dormant. Anchored in a beautifully vivid 18th century setting, this film looks just as exquisite as Nannerl’s music sounds.
Quirky comedy-drama about a wealthy, intellectual New York family whose three children were prodigies, but which has fallen apart over time.
