I know people will talk about Maestro as a biopic, but it’s not – it’s a movie about a marriage. A very complicated marriage. – Mulligan on Maestro movie
Their connection was profound, they lit each other up. You can hear it: There are tapes of them trading anecdotes and it’s like they’re dancing. For her, the betrayal wasn’t sex; it was when she felt someone else intruding into the space she held for him, being the person who understood him, who was necessary. – Mulligan on Leonard Bernstein and Felicia Montealegre relationship
There are so many ways you can tell a story about Leonard Bernstein. Like, there’s a version where Felicia has one or two scenes. What I love about this version is that it’s about what they created together. He really needed her. He didn’t do it all alone. – Mulligan on Leonard Bernstein
