Leonard Bernstein – A Genius Divided

“Leonard Bernstein – A Genius Divided” is a most intimate and surprising portrait of someone who the whole world thinks they know. With the „West Side Story” he composed one of the most successful musicals of all times. Nevertheless, in the last two decades of his life, the fact that he is only being noticed as the conductor and composer of long-gone hits, brings him close to his breaking point – professionally as well as in his private life.
