Teaser Trailer: Bradley Cooper Back for More Oscars with Leonard Bernstein Bio, “Maestro,” Starring Carey Mulligan and Himself


Bradley Cooper looks and sounds amazingly like composer and conductor Leonard Bernstein in the teaser trailer for “Maestro.”

Cooper is coming back for more Oscar attention after making the excellent “A Star is Born.” Carey Mulligan plays Felicia, Leonard’s long suffering wife. In this teaser, you just see their love story. But there will be dramatic fireworks when Felicia discovers the rest of Leonard’s life.

Netflix is sending “Maestro” to the Venice Film Festival, and we’ll see where else it turns up before its November release. It does look like a Best Picture nominee, making it the fourth perhaps in a group with “Oppenheimer,” “Killers of the Flower Moon,” and “AIR.”
