CAST: Carey Mulligan, Bradley Cooper, Matt Bomer DIRECTOR: Bradley Cooper
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.
Watching Cooper and Mulligan portray their characters across decades, it's hard not to be impressed, while nurturing a greater appreciation for why Cooper found Bernstein's contributions and complications deserving of such a tribute.Brian Lowry, CNN.com
Maestro is Mulligan's movie, and she is its roaring heart. The poise with which she holds sweetness, sacrifice, denial, love and rage within herself is exquisite.Pippa Bailey, New Statesman
