The anticipation for Bradley Cooper’s latest directorial venture, “Maestro,” reached new heights as Netflix released its first full-length trailer. Co-written and directed by Cooper himself, the film delves into the life of iconic composer Leonard Bernstein and his wife, Felicia Montealegre Cohn Bernstein.
“Maestro” narrates the enduring and audacious love story between Leonard Bernstein, portrayed by Cooper, and Felicia Montealegre Cohn Bernstein, played by Carey Mulligan. This deeply emotional film serves as a love letter to both life and art, capturing the essence of family and love in its most profound forms.
In addition to Cooper and Mulligan, the star-studded cast includes Matt Bomer, who takes on the role of Bernstein’s lover, adding another layer of complexity to the narrative. Candid on-set photos have already surfaced, capturing intimate moments between Bomer and Cooper’s characters. The film also features Maya Hawke, Sarah Silverman, Josh Hamilton, Scott Ellis, Gideon Glick, Sam Nivola, Alexa Swinton, and Miriam Shor, promising a compelling ensemble performance.
While Leonard Bernstein never publicly acknowledged his sexuality during his lifetime, after his passing in 1990, his wife confirmed his intimate relationships with men, adding depth to his personal story, a facet likely explored in “Maestro.”
Set to hit theaters on November 22, “Maestro” will then make its streaming debut on Netflix on December 20. With Cooper’s directorial prowess, an outstanding cast, and a compelling storyline, this biographical drama is poised to be a captivating cinematic experience for audiences worldwide.
