The Official Trailer for Bradley Cooper’s “Maestro” Hits All the Right Notes

The official trailer for Bradley Cooper’s Maestro has arrived, giving us our most in-depth look yet at his look at the life of the legendary conductor and composer Leonard Bernstein (Cooper) and his lifelong relationship with actress and activist Felicia Montealegre Cohn Bernstein (Carey Mulligan). 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.

The trailer centers on both the lasting relationship between Leonard and Felicia, as well as the music that is central to their lives and his legacy. The trailer teases out the complexity of their relationship, the mercurial nature of this musical titan, his varied romantic tastes, and the way that his love of people was most vividly displayed by his commitment to music. “I love people so much that it’s hard for me to be alone,” Bernstein says at one point, “and music, it keeps me glued to life.”

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.

Check out the trailer below. Maestro hits select theaters on November 22 and Netflix on December 20.
