Bradley Cooper directs and stars in "Maestro," a film about Leonard Bernstein's complex relationship with Felicia Montealegre.

Carey Mulligan, Matt Bomer, Maya Hawke, and Michael Urie are part of the film's cast.

Leonard Bernstein was a legendary conductor, composer, and pianist, known for his iconic works.

Bernstein and Montealegre met in 1946, got engaged, broke it off, and later married in 1951.

They had a public image of devotion but faced issues due to Bernstein's infidelity.

Both were involved in their careers and supported social movements.

Bernstein struggled with his sexuality and eventually left Montealegre for a relationship with Tom Cothran.

Montealegre was diagnosed with lung cancer in 1977 and passed away in 1978.

Bernstein continued his career until retiring in 1990, passing away from health issues in the same year and resting beside Montealegre.
