Directed by: Bradley Cooper

Bradley Cooper and Carey Mulligan deliver stunning
performances as Leonard Bernstein and his wife, actress Felicia
Montealegre, in this intimate portrait of a marriage that spanned
more than 25 years. Bernstein was an indispensable figure in
the history of classical music, as a conductor, composer, pianist,
and educator. Certainly, the dominant American conductor of
the late 20th century, he accomplished as much as anyone in
making “serious” music intelligible to a broad audience. With
breathtaking sweep, Maestro reflects on Bernstein’s life, career,
and marriage with Felicia, which endured through his many
liaisons. The film marks Cooper’s return to the director’s chair
following his triumphant A STAR IS BORN. Co-scripting with
Josh Singer, he’s also among its producers along with Martin
Scorsese and Steven Spielberg. Against an evolving film canvas
of black-and-white and color, his extraordinary portrayal captures
Bernstein’s bold and charismatic conducting style, animated by
music from the maestro himself.
