Stranger Things Actor Maya Hawke to Star in Netflix’s New Film “Maestro”

“Maestro” is a biopic about Leonard Bernstein (played by Bradley Cooper) the legendary conductor and composer who is behind the scores for West Side Story and On the Waterfront. The drama that spans over 30 years in telling the beautifully complex story of the marriage between Bernstein and Chilean-born actress Montealegre. Bernstein’s colorful life included making a memorable conducting debut at the New York Philharmonic at 25 when the conductor took ill; without even rehearsing, Bernstein did so well his star was launched the next day when his feat made the front page of the New York Times. He was blacklisted before being cleared of being a communist just before he composed the Oscar-nominated score for On the Waterfront; and he was an activist in the civil rights movement, and outspoken on issues including ending the Vietnam War.
