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, the film is an emotionally epic portrayal of the family and love in a complicated marriage. With bold visual artistry and romantic gusto, director Bradley Cooper vividly transports the audience to post-war New York and the result is a symphony of emotions.
