Classical music aficionado or not, it's tough not to be moved by the soaring notes of Ludwig van Beethoven's Ninth Symphony. The work stands as both a defining highpoint in the composer's career and one of the most sublime and spiritual pieces of music ever written.

Starring Ed Harris and Diane Kruger, Copying Beethoven is an imaginative exploration of Beethoven's life, set in Vienna in 1824, during his final days working on the Ninth. Profoundly deaf, he calls for the assistance of a copyist in order to complete the symphony in time for the first scheduled performance.

An insightful conservatory student, Anna Holtz (Kruger), is recommended and despite Beethoven's deep reservations about a woman being involved in his masterpiece, Holtz is employed. By the time the piece is performed - a moment in history captured in an exquisitely moving shot from Anna's perspective, as she sits on the orchestra floor helping the deaf Beethoven to keep time - her presence in his life is an absolute necessity.

Award-winning director Agnieszka Holland (The Secret Garden, Europa Europa, Olivier Olivier) brings together Beethoven's musical genius and his tormented private world to create a thrilling and romantic film.
