Bradley Cooper Makes Surprise Appearance at New York Film Fest ‘Maestro’ Premiere

On the night of October 2, 2023, American actor and filmmaker Bradley Cooper made a surprise appearance at the New York Film Festival’s North American premiere screening of his latest project, ‘Maestro.’

Due to the ongoing actors’ strike, he had not been attending press opportunities, including the movie’s world premiere at the Venice Film Festival, but was present in the audience at Lincoln Center’s David Geffen Hall on Monday night.

The upcoming American biographical drama revolves around the relationship between American composer Leonard Bernstein and his wife, Felicia Montealegre.

The biopic is directed by Bradley Cooper from a screenplay he wrote with Josh Singer and produced by Martin Scorsese, Steven Spielberg, and Cooper, among others.

Leonard Bernstein’s daughter Jamie delightedly announced from the stage as she presented Maestro that Cooper was permitted to watch the movie aligning with SAG-AFTRA strike rules. She said,

“The Screen Actors Guild guidelines permit our director, Mr. Cooper, to watch his film with us here tonight. So let’s all welcome Bradley Cooper to the debut of his beautiful film.”

The cast of the movie includes Carey Mulligan as Montealegre and Cooper as Bernstein. Matt Bomer, Maya Hawke, and Sarah Silverman appear in supporting roles.

‘Maestro’ is slated for limited theatrical release on November 22, 2023, followed by streaming on Netflix on December 20, 2023.
