Coming November, the Academy Award ambitions of ‘Oppenheimer’ and ‘Barbie’ will collide with Bradley Cooper‘s ‘Maestro.’ The 48-year-old actor turned filmmaker will likely be an Oscar favorite, given the widespread acclaim of his last directorial feature, ‘A Star Is Born.’ Once again, Cooper writes, directs, and stars in another high-profile project.
‘Maestro’ presents the beautiful and tragic odyssey of Leonard Bernstein. A singular talent, he was known for his work on ‘On The Town,’ ‘Wonderful Town,’ and ‘West Side Story.’ He led a complex inner life to which his answer was multiple infidelities. The biopic will chronicle his musical journey and murky personal life.
‘Maestro’ Plot Details
In the first trailer for ‘Maestro,’ Leonard Bernstein and Felicia Montealegre share a moment across time and space as the trailer shows the highs and lows of the American composer’s life. Based on the brief teaser, the film will put his professional and personal life under the looking glass.
Leonard Bernstein was a once-in-a-lifetime musical talent. A prodigious composer, he was the first American-born conductor to lead a major American symphony orchestra. He was married to Felicia Montealegre but was known to be a serial philanderer. She ignored his affairs, staying with him through the end.
