Bradley Cooper’s Maestro is one of the biggest Oscar hopefuls coming to Netflix this year, and the streamer finally gave us a taste of things to come. The first teaser trailer for Maestro stars Cooper and Carey Mulligan and dives into the complicated love life of the iconic composer Leonard Bernstein.
Bernstein made a name for himself in Hollywood after writing scores for Broadway’s West Side Story and Marlon Brando’s film On the Waterfront, but his love life attracted as much attention as his work. His complex relationship with actress Felicia Montealegre spanned three decades, but he famously had countless affairs during their time together.
Maestro will chronicle “a towering and fearless love story” of the infamous couple, and Netflix describes it as “a love letter to life and art” and “an emotionally epic portrayal of family and love.”
The supporting cast of Maestro includes Matt Bomer, Maya Hawke, Sarah Silverman, Josh Hamilton, Scott Ellis, Gideon Glick, Sam Nivola, Alexa Swinton, and Miriam Shor. In addition to playing the lead role, Cooper also directed the film and co-wrote the script alongside the Oscar winner Josh Singer.
Maestro will have its world premiere at the Venice International Film Festival on September 2, before heading to theatres on November 22 and streaming on Netflix on December 20.
