There’s been considerable hype surrounding Bradley Cooper’s directorial follow-up to the monstrously successful A Star Is Born remake in which he co-starred alongside Lady Gaga. But we have to admit — prior to Netflix unveiling of the first Maestro trailer, we weren’t exactly hanging on the edge of our seats for a Leonard Bernstein biopic.

Based on what’s been previewed today, however, we have a feeling the actor-turned-filmmaker has another certifiable winner on his hands. Complete with incredibly impressive prosthetic work from the extremely talented Kazu Hiro.

Arriving to select theatres and Netflix later this year, this “love letter” to the life and art of the legendary composer + conductor (Cooper) viewed through the lens of his 25-year marriage to Felicia Montealegre (Carey Mulligan) promises to be a humanising portrait of a larger-than-life cultural icon.

Mulligan and Cooper have been joined by Maya Hawke as the couple’s daughter Jamie, and Sam Nivola as their son Alexander; in addition to the likes of Matt Bomer, Sarah Silverman, Gideon Glick, Gabe Fazio, Eric Parkinson, William Hill, Nick Blaemire, Oscar Pavlo, Tim Rogan, and Mallory Portnoy.

On top of directing, starring, and co-writing in collaboration with Josh Singer, Bradley Cooper has produced Maestro alongside Martin Scorsese, Steven Spielberg, and more; the cinematography has been achieved by Matthew Libatique (Requiem for a Dream, Black Swans, A Star Is Born).

Maestro starring Bradley Cooper and Carey Mulligan is slated to premiere at this year’s Venice Film Festival before a limited theatrical run which kicks off on November 22, eventually making its way to Netflix on December 20 — check out the trailer above.
