Special guest: Introduction by makeup artist Gerald Quist.
Winner of eight Academy Awards, including Best Picture and Makeup for Dick Smith and Paul LeBlanc (Black Swan), Amadeus chronicles the rivalry between composers Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (Tom Hulce) and Antonio Salieri (F. Murray Abraham) in the court of Emperor Joseph II. Unanimously revered for Smith’s makeup depicting the weight of time on Salieri’s face, the authenticity also found in the masquerade party scenes as well as the day-to-day looks of the 18th century Viennese ruling class make the pair’s contributions to this beloved epic integral to the film’s verisimilitude.
