Who was Beethoven's "immortal beloved?" An actual letter left by the master composer becomes the inspiration for this enchanting biography of Beethoven. Played with great intensity by Gary Oldman, Beethoven goes through many lovers but always returns to his true mistress: his music. This lush epic culminates with a stirring performance of Beethoven's masterpiece "Symphony No. 9." It's not what you think of when you hear the music, but what the composer was thinking when he wrote it. Even if you've never listened to classical music, you'll appreciate this feature.
