Bradley Cooper and Carey Mulligan gain critical praise in the new trailer for Netflix’s upcoming awards season film, which is directed by Cooper.
Let the music pull on your heartstrings and allow you to get overcome with emotion as Netflix releases the new trailer for Bradley Cooper’s new directorial effort, Maestro. Not only is this Cooper’s sophomore outing as a director, it’s also his second venture into the world of music and the artists behind it. In addition to directing, Cooper co-wrote the script with Josh Singer. Singer spoke of the film via Netflix’s Tudum, “I think people will see the complexity of marriage and the many forms love can take. I think those are both powerful themes.” The teaser debuted in August, and Cooper faced a bit of a backlash due to his prosthetic nose for the character drawing controversy.
The synopsis of the plot reads,
“Billed as an emotionally epic examination of family and love, Maestro tells the complex love story of Leonard Bernstein and Felicia Montealegre Cohn Bernstein (Carey Mulligan) — a story that spans over 30 years. Perhaps best known for his score to Broadway’s West Side Story and the classic Marlon Brando film On the Waterfront, Bernstein married the actress in 1951 and went on to share three children with her, with the couple splitting their time between New York and Connecticut. Complicating the dynamic between the duo were the affairs he had over the years, with both men and women, even as they were conducted with Felicia’s consenting awareness. The pair were separated at one point for a period of a year, though they ultimately stayed together until Felicia’s death in 1978.”
The film’s cast includes Carey Mulligan, Bradley Cooper, Matt Bomer, Maya Hawke, Sarah Silverman, Josh Hamilton, Scott Ellis, Gideon Glick, Sam Nivola, Alexa Swinton, and Miriam Shor. Maestro comes from Steven Spielberg’s Amblin Entertainment and Martin Scorsese, Bradley Cooper, Steven Spielberg, Fred Berner, Amy Durning, and Kristie Macosko Krieger are on board as producers on the film. Executive producers include Carla Raij, Josh Singer, Bobby Wilhelm, Weston Middleton, and Tracey Landon. Bradley Cooper would co-write the movie’s screenplay with Josh Singer, whose credits include Spotlight, The Post, and First Man.
Maestro will be released in theaters on November 22, before finally heading to Netflix, where it will available to stream on December 20.
