Episode notes

Oscar and BAFTA nominee Carey Mulligan returns to Girls On Film for a very special episode celebrating her performance in the towering epic Maestro, currently on Netflix. Carey plays Felicia Montealegre Cohn Bernstein, opposite director Bradley Cooper as composer Leonard Bernstein, and her performance is spellbinding. She joined host Anna Smith after a screening of Maestro in London on 23rd January 2024 - the very day she was announced as a nominee for the Oscar for Actress in a Leading Role. This exclusive recording sees Carey sharing her thoughts on preparing for this complex role, working with Bradley Cooper and the incredible craft departments such as Hair and Make-Up. Recalling Carey’s first appearance on episode 3 of Girls On Film, Anna and Carey spoke frankly about how things have progressed for women in film, and how much has changed since we launched the podcast.
