Maestro: Trailer for new Bradley Cooper-directed drama starring Carey Mulligan unveiled by Netflix


Bradley Cooper’s sophomoric directorial effort finds the actor back in a music-themed romance with Carey Mulligan for Netflix.

Awards season is over the horizon, and while films like Killers of the Flower Moon and Napoleon are going to be big releases for Apple Originals, Netflix will be throwing its hat into the fray with Bradley Cooper’s new drama, Maestro. Cooper, who has already gained acclaim as a writer and director with his Academy Award-nominated remake of A Star is Born from 2018, returns in the trifecta duty of writing, directing, and starring in Maestro alongside Carey Mulligan, whose credits include The Great Gatsby and had garnered positive reviews for her performance in Promising Young Woman. Netflix has now released the trailer for Cooper’s romance drama.

The official plot synopsis, according to Deadline, 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 is set to premiere in Venice, then it will be released in theaters on November 22, before finally heading to Netflix, where it will available to stream on December 20.
