The first trailer is out for the upcoming Leonard Bernstein biopic Maestro and, oh, does it look good.
The Netflix film centers on the lifelong relationship between composer-conductor Bernstein and actress Felicia Montealegre Cohn Bernstein. The couple, who were married until her death, are brought to life on screen by Oscar and Tony nominees Bradley Cooper and Carey Mulligan. Cooper also directs the film, which he co-wrote with Josh Singer.
Maestro also stars Matt Bomer as clarinetist David Oppenhiem, a close friend of Bernstein's; Michael Urie as choreographer Jerome Robbins; Gideon Glick as musician Tommy Cothran, a rumored lover of Bernstein's; Maya Hawke as Jamie Bernstein, daughter of Leonard and Felicia; Sarah Silverman as Shirley Bernstein, Leonard's sister; and Miriam Shor as actress and model Cynthia O'Neal.
In addition to being a celebrated concert conductor and composer, Bernstein wrote several musical theatre scores for Broadway, including On the Town, Peter Pan, Wonderful Town, Candide, and West Side Story.
The movie will be released in select theatres November 22, followed by its Netflix streaming release December 20.
