Maestro: Monday Cinema

February 5 4:00 to 6:10 pm

A love letter to life and art, “Maestro” tells the complex love story of Leonard Bernstein and Felicia Montealegre Cohn Bernstein. An emotionally epic portrayal of family and love, that spans over 30 years, led by a pair of powerful performances, Maestro serves as a stirring overview of a tremendous talent's life and legacy.

“A movie that is as exhilarating as it is unconventional, a fitting portrait of a man who was determined to always live life on his own terms, no matter the consequences.” - Peter Howell, Toronto Star

“Maestro is the closest thing to perfection I’ve seen on the screen in a very long time.” - Rex Reed, Observer

“‘Maestro’ is a deeply felt passion project that…made me want to stand up and cheer.” - Leonard Maltin,

“A stunning portrait of the artist as a charismatic narcissist in thrall to a marriage he believes in yet can’t completely live up to.” - Owen Gleiberman, Variety

“This is not just a worthy tribute to one of the greatest figures in the American musical canon, but also one of the finest films of the year.” - Marlow Stern, Rolling Stone

“An astonishingly beautiful film, by turns heartbreaking, tragic and tender, one that is fully constructed around two incessantly committed career-high performances.” - Kevin Maher, Times (UK)
