What emerges is a portrait of a woman of extraordinary natural gifts and work ethic, who was pressured to become a superstar by her mother and then her husband, instead of a conventional homemaker and mother.
"Maria By Callas..." expertly presents an emotional essence of this performer, leaving you both shaken and stirred by the extent of her gifts and the way they connected to both audiences and her tumultuous life.
The film resolves as a passionate tribute to a woman who commanded the world's attention, but was never afforded its decency. It's a curtain call for Callas, and a chance for the great singer to be heard again.
