It is eighteenth century France and the country is under the reign of King Louis XIV (Leonardo DiCaprio), a spiteful ruler who has engaged the nation in countless wars, squandered its money on multiple mistresses, and oppressed all those who opposed him. 

Unbeknownst to his countrymen, Louis has kept his twin brother,Philippe (also portrayed by DiCaprio)locked in an underground dungeon for years.  The famed Three Musketeers intend to free Philippe, remove his inhumane iron mask, and help him usurp his tyrannical brother's throne.

The Man in the Iron Mask was an unquestionable commercial success, garnering $182 million at the box office -- five times its $35 million budget.
