We are restarting our annual trek to see all of the potential Oscar nominated films. The GoldDerby site has the film in the running for best picture, best actor, best actress and best original screenplay nominations.
Maestro is a biographical drama film that centers on the relationship between American composer Leonard Bernstein and his wife Felicia Montealegre. It was directed by Bradley Cooper, from a screenplay he wrote with Josh Singer.
The film stars Bradley Cooper as Berstein and Carey Mulligan (Promising Young Woman) as Montealegre. Matt Bomer, Maya Hawke, and Sarah Silverman appear in supporting roles.
Cooper's performance as Berstien is exceptional. Mulligan is also very good. I would bet that the movie gets nominations for best picture, best actor and best actress. Nevertheless, I don't believe that it can win best picture. The film received a limited theatrical release in Sacramento, before being released on Netflix on December 20.
