F. Murray Abraham, as court composer Salieri, boils with rage when he sees that spoiled brat Mozart is the one who has been truly gifted with musical genius. This is a costume drama that never lets the costumes get in the way.

I really like Ordinary People, but I gave a slight edge and the vote....to Terms Of Endearment. I still cry everytime I watch that. The hospital scene where Shirley McClaine starts yelling at the nurses to give her daughter some pain medicine just breaks my heart.
