The First Teaser for Bradley Cooper’s “Maestro” is Here, and It’s Beautiful

The first teaser for Bradley Cooper’s Maestro has arrived with a swell of beautiful music. This epic love story, Cooper’s first directorial effort since A Star is Born, is based on a script he co-wrote with Josh Singer and is centered on the legendary conductor and composer Leonard Bernstein (Cooper) and his lifelong relationship with actress and activist Felicia Montealegre Cohn Bernstein (Carey Mulligan).

The teaser is focused squarely on the love between the two in a beautiful, brief, pared-down glimpse. We open on our young lovers sitting, back-to-back, in a park, as Felicia instructs Leonard on the game they’re playing where she thinks of a number, and he has to intuit what it is. The object of the game is for them to become so close they can share their thoughts in a kind of romantic telepathy. Backed by some of the beautiful music that Bernstein created during his long, momentous career, the teaser ends with the same pair playing the same game, only older now. Yet, they seem no less in love.

Maestro is one of the most eagerly-anticipated films of the fall, arriving in theaters on November 22 before it streams on Netflix on December 20. Joining Cooper and Mulligan are Matt Bomer, Maya Hawke, Sarah Silverman, Michael Urie, Josh Hamilton, Scott Ellis, Gideon Glick, Sam Nivola, Alexa Swinton, and Miriam Shor. Produces include none other than Martin Scorsese and Steven Spielberg. Spielberg, of course, directed the recent film adaptation of Bernstein’s deathless West Side Story.

The teaser is a sumptuous peek at what will be a must-see film. Check it out below:
