Maestro |



Screening Times


    “When we critics complain that studio pictures don’t take risks any more, Maestro is exactly the sort of film we wish they’d make instead. Not everything in it lands cleanly, but even its misses excite, and its direct hits are knockouts.”
    ★★★★★ Robbie Collin, Daily Telegraph

    "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)

    "A Star Is Born was wildly overpraised, but Maestro is the real deal: the rousing, complex and heartbreaking rhapsody its subject deserves."
    ★★★★★ Raphael Abraham, Financial Times

    "Cooper’s Maestro succeeds because it is candid about the sacrifices which art demands of its practitioners, and the sacrifices these practitioners demand of their families and partners."
    ★★★★ Peter Bradshaw, Guardian

    "Like Bernstein’s music, this movie won’t appeal to everybody, but it is an accomplished and moving biopic of two fascinating people, and a glimpse behind the public face of a truly great artist."
    ★★★★ Jo-Ann Titmarsh, London Evening Standard

    “Cooper shows us his subject’s mix of magnetism, volatility and childlike egotism but he remains a strangely elusive figure. It’s left to Mulligan’s Felicia to crack the film’s sometimes too-shiny facade and to give its story some bruising emotional depth.”
    ★★★★ Geoffrey Mcnab, Independent

    “It’s a film for cinephiles as well as musos and romantics, with its discrete ‘movements’ mirroring the movie making style of its time frame.”
    ★★★★ Philip De Semlyen, Time Out
