Leonard Bernstein, the most famous American composer, was a man of contradictions. An auteur composer and a Broadway showman, a homosexual man happily married to a woman, a sexual icon in an age that still cared about intellect. In five movements, like a symphony, we follow Bernstein’s personal and public struggles from conducting the New York Philharmonic at the ripe age of 25 to the opening night of West Side Story.
