It is a time of both splendor and despair. France’s self-serving King Louis XIV (Leonardo DiCaprio) enjoys the riches of the world while his people die of starvation. Believing that he is all-powerful, Louis fears no one-except the one person who could bring his reign to an end: the man he imprisoned for eternity behind a mask of iron. And when Louis’ selfish excesses go too far, retired Musketeers Athos (John Malkovich), Porthos (Gerard Depardieu), and Aramis (Jeremy Irons) vow to free the mysterious prisoner who may be France’s only hope for survival. Only one question remains: will their old comrade, the legendary D’Artagnan (Gabriel Byrne) help them-or destroy them?
