The Big Picture

  • Maestro is not your typical biopic, as it focuses on the marriage and life between Leonard Bernstein and Felicia Montealegre rather than just his musical genius.
  • The script subverts classic biopic tropes by emphasizing this relationship between Leonard and Felicia and letting the music speak for itself.
  • Bradley Cooper and Carey Mulligan deliver brilliant performances and have excellent chemistry, bringing depth and vulnerability to their characters' marriage.
