Bradley Cooper and Carey Mulligan play out unharmonious matrimony in this cinematic biography of American composer Leonard Bernstein (West Side Story).
Bradley Cooper stars and directs this biographical heart-shaking drama about one of the most renowned musical artists in history.
Detailing the life and trials of Leonard Bernstein, a composer, conductor, and all-round musical brilliance, and his turbulent marriage to stage and screen star Felicia Montealegre Bernstein (played with dumb-founding talent by Carey Mulligan).
A foray through the second half of the 20th Century, with humour, beauty and grace, Maestro maturely tackles changing attitudes and prejudices towards race and sexuality. Produced by none other than Martin Scorsese, Steven Spielberg, and Todd Phillips, Maestro is an absolute cinematic (and musical) treat, that plays out deliciously on the big screen.
2023 USA dir Bradley Cooper
