Maestro is Bradley Cooper's long-anticipated follow-up to A Star Is Born. In fact, he essentially started work on this Leonard Bernstein biopic as soon as he was finished with his directorial debut.
But this time, he's not working through a traditional Hollywood studio. Instead, this Oscar hopeful is produced by the streaming service giant Netflix. It's still getting a limited theatrical release, but for a lot of people, sitting on your couch at home may be the first time you see this movie.
Lucky for you, we already know exactly when Maestro will be coming to streaming. Here's when you can expect Maestro on Netflix and everything else you need to know.
When will Maestro stream on Netflix?
Maestro is currently available to stream on Netflix. No guesswork is required on this one.
What is Maestro about?
Maestro is about the life of acclaimed conductor Leonard Bernstein (Bradley Cooper), who rose to prominence in 1940s New York City as one of the first legendary American conductors of classical music.
He would go on to become a prominent conductor and composer across numerous genres, winning numerous Emmy Awards and Grammy Awards, and even securing a Tony Award for the musical Wonderful Town in 1953. He only ever received one Academy Award nomination in 1954 for On the Waterfront and therefore fell short of the coveted "EGOT," but that shortcoming has certainly not diminished his legacy in any way.
But it's not Bernstein's success that's the focus of Maestro, even if it's impossible for the film to ignore it. Instead, the movie focuses on Bernstein's relationship with his wife Felicia Montealegre (Carey Mulligan) and the family that springs from their love.
The film has received mostly positive reviews from critics, with a nomination for the Golden Lion at the Venice International Film Festival and an 80% "fresh" rating on Rotten Tomatoes. It's also received quite a few Golden Globe nominations, including Best Motion Picture - Drama and acting award nominations for Cooper and Mulligan.
Maestro is a biopic and therefore a lot of the people portrayed in the movie are figures from real life. Here's the main cast for the movie:
- Carey Mulligan as Felicia Montealegre, an actress and Leonard Bernstein's wife
- Bradley Cooper as Leonard Bernstein, acclaimed conductor and Felicia's husband
- Maya Hawke as Jamie Bernstein, Felicia and Leonard's daughter
- Sarah Silverman as Shirley Bernstein, Leonard's sister
- Gideon Glick as Tommy Cothran, Leonard's protege
- Matt Bomer as David Oppenheim, a famous clarinetist
