Poster for the film MAESTRO


Maestro, directed by Academy Award nominee Bradley Cooper, is a towering and fearless love story chronicling the lifelong relationship between Leonard Bernstein (Cooper) and Felicia Montealegre Cohn Bernstein (Carey Mulligan).

A love letter to life and art, Maestro at its core is an emotionally epic portrayal of family and love.

"This is a complex and sophisticated picture, the kind of grown-up love story we see all too rarely these days, especially when it comes to starry, big-ticket moviemaking."
Stephanie Zacharek, TIME
"Maestro can’t help but be dominated by the grandeur of Bernstein’s passion, his outsize flaws, and the tightrope he walked between the need to find the meaning of beauty and the desire to stay fancy free. Yet Cooper and Mulligan make the movie a duet to remember."
Owen Gleiberman, Variety
