A re-imagined account of the early life of Maria Anna 'Nannerl' Mozart, 5 years older than Wolfgang and a musical prodigy in her own right. Once the featured performer, Nannerl has given way to Wolfgang as the main attraction, as their father Leopold tours his talented offspring in front of the royal courts of Europe. Approaching marriageable age and now forbidden to play the violin or compose, Nannerl chafes at the limitations imposed on her gender.

Due to gender, Mozart's sister and her brilliant musical talent are denied opportunities. There's a brief span of flirtation with the entitled, self-absorbed King of France, but she sees from the first that it's best to develop her own path, whatever the limitations. Can't give this film a higher rating because it documents tired old ways of thinking.

“Mozart's Sister” This was interesting to me as a social commentary, on the times and an impactful personage. A woman's attempts and frustrations in dealing with society's morays. The capricious power arrangements around rulers and their families. A family's desperate machinations to be or become important. Speak of depressing endings: the real-life ending of this saga is not uplifting at all.

I had such high hopes, but so much of this movie is not only fantasy but the acting is generally quite poor.
