Maestro. Bradley Cooper as Leonard Bernstein (Director/Writer/Producer) in Maestro. Cr. Jason McDonald/Netflix © 2023. /

Bradley Cooper stars in and directs the life story of Leonard Bernstein, one of the greatest conductors who ever lived.

What age is it appropriate for? Maestro is rated R for conductoR. Just kidding, it has some language and drug use. In fact, though the movie deals with adult themes, the R rating seems a little extreme. Kids won’t be interested, teens should be just fine.

Where to stream: Netflix
