Drama, Historical
Based on actual events. An aspiring composer must choose between her love for music and her love for men in this emotional period piece by acclaimed director Bruce Beresford. During a cultural boom in Vienna near the turn of the 20th century, a reluctant muse, Alma Schindler (Sarah Wynter), first chooses men over music as she endures multiple marriages of angst and suppressed self-expression. However, after years of putting her dreams on hold, the repressed musician achieves artistic and personal freedom by performing her first musical opus. Although potentially powerful scenes rush across the screen, the harmonious score, the luscious set designs and the noteworthy performances, including Jonathan Pryce as composer Gustav Mahler, all prevent this film from merely blowing by.
Director: Bruce Beresford
Cast: Sarah Wynter and Jonathan Pryce
