Mozart’s Sister

Watch Trailer
Watch Trailer

Mozart’s Sister is a re-imagined account of the early life of Maria Anna ‘Nannerl’ Mozart, five 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 strict but loving father Leopold tours his talented offspring in front of the royal courts of pre-French Revolution Europe. Approaching marriageable age and now forbidden to play the violin or compose, Nannerl chafes at the limitations imposed on her gender. But a friendship with the son and daughter of Louis XV offers her ways to challenge the established sexual and social order.

Watch SIBYL on Virtual Cinema!

Lacking inspiration for her new novel, psychotherapist Sibyl (Virginie Efira) borrows source material from her newest patient Margot (Adèle Exarchopoulos, Blue is the Warmest Color), blurring fiction and reality in this sly, sultry character study from Justine Triet. Find SIBYL playing in select theaters and virtually with a local arthouse under “Theatrical Engagements” in the link below.
