When it comes to his directorial jobs, Bradley Cooper’s ambition cannot be questioned.

He made a successful debut with the 2018 film A Star Is Born, for which he received numerous accolades, including Oscar nominations. He’s taken on a subject Steven Spielberg was thinking about for his next film: a biopic of renowned composer Leonard Bernstein in which he plays Bernstein. Maestro, which also stars Carey Mulligan, is the outcome. View the first teaser here.

The movie was created by Netflix, which calls it “a towering and courageous love story portraying the lifelong romance between Leonard Bernstein and Felicia Montealegre Cohn Bernstein. Maestro, a love letter to life and the arts, is fundamentally an emotionally sweeping depiction of love and family.

The play spans more than 30 years and details Leonard Bernstein’s interesting career. At age 25, Bernstein made his conducting debut at the New York Philharmonic after being forced to fill in for a sick colleague. He performed so well that when his achievement made The New York Times’ front page the following day, his star was cemented.

He was outspoken about causes like stopping the Vietnam War and was an activist in the civil rights movement until he was cleared of being a communist and blacklisted just before writing the Oscar-nominated soundtrack for On the Waterfront. The intricate tale of Bernstein and his wife, as portrayed by Mulligan, serves as the film’s central theme.
