American Movie Institute introduced that Bradley Cooper‘s Leonard Bernstein biopic Maestro has been chosen to shut out the upcoming thirty seventh AFI Fest.

The biographical drama will arrive in chosen theaters on November 22, adopted by its Netflix debut on December 20.
“MAESTRO shows Bradley Cooper’s symphony of expertise with the facility of a cymbal crash,” AFI head Bob Gazzale stated in an announcement. “It’s AFI’s honor to shine a lightweight upon this extraordinary murals on the competition’s Closing Evening.”
What’s Maestro about?
“Maestro is a towering and fearless love story chronicling the lifelong relationship between Leonard Bernstein and Felicia Montealegre Cohn Bernstein,” reads the official synopsis. “A love letter to life and artwork, Maestro at its core is an emotionally epic portrayal of household and love.”
