Maestro Trailer: Bradley Cooper is Unrecognizable in Epic Transformation

Cooper transforms Into Leonard Bernstein in his ‘A Star Is Born’ directorial follow-up.

Netflix reveals the first official Maestro trailer, Bradley Cooper’s second directorial attempt in which he plays legendary composer Leonard Bernstein.

The teaser shows the decades-long relationship between Bernstein and actress Felicia Montealegre Cohn Bernstein, brought to life by Carey Mulligan. They married in 1951. The trailer opens with a monochromatic scene, depicting the couple seated in a field, engrossed in a playful guessing game. The teaser focuses heavily on Bernstein and Cohn Bernstein’s connection, which corresponds to Netflix’s official synopsis for Maestro.

“’Maestro’ is a towering and fearless love story chronicling the lifelong relationship between Leonard Bernstein and Felicia Montealegre Cohn Bernstein. A love letter to life and art, ‘Maestro’ at its core is an emotionally epic portrayal of family and love.”

Alongside Cooper and Mulligan co-stars, Maya Hawke who portrays their daughter Jamie, while Sam Nivola plays their son Alexander. Matt Bomer, Sarah Silverman, Gideon Glick, Gabe Fazio, Eric Parkinson, William Hill, Nick Blaemire, Oscar Pavlo, Tim Rogan, and Mallory Portnoy are among the other cast members.

Cooper teased Maestro in a Variety interview with Mahershala Ali last January, saying he “wanted to be a conductor since I was a kid.” He said, “Listening to music, falling in love with it and being able to really know every single moment of a piece, like Tchaikovsky’s Opus 35 in D major, this violin concerto. I could do it as if I know everything about it without really being able to speak the language, obviously.”

In 2018, Bradley Cooper marked his directorial debut with A Star Is Born. The movie featured himself alongside Lady Gaga and received an Oscar nomination for Best Picture. Cooper himself earned nominations for Best Actor and Adapted Screenplay. Notably, the film secured the Original Song award for Lady Gaga’s emotive track, “Shallow.”

Maestro will premiere in September at the Venice Film Festival before hitting theatres in November. It will release on Netflix on December 20.
