A Star Is Born

Synopsis

In “A Star Is Born,” Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga fuse their considerable talents to depict the raw and passionate tale of Jack and Ally, two artistic souls coming together, on stage and in life. Theirs is a complex journey through the beauty and the heartbreak of a relationship struggling to survive. In this new take on the iconic love story, four-time Oscar nominee Cooper (“American Sniper,” “American Hustle,” “Silver Linings Playbook”), makes his directorial debut, and also stars alongside multiple award-winning, Oscar-nominated music superstar Gaga in her first leading role in a major motion picture. Cooper portrays seasoned musician Jackson Maine, who discovers and falls in love with struggling artist Ally. She has given up on her dream to become a successful singer, until she meets Jack, who immediately sees her natural talent.

Critics Views

“Cooper has made a jaggedly tender love story that is never over-the-top, an operatic movie that dares to be quiet.” Variety

“It’s wonderful to see a first-time filmmaker who’s more interested in effective storytelling than in impressing us; telling a story effectively is hard enough. Best of all, Cooper has succeeded in making a terrific melodrama for the modern age.” Time

“In his impressive directing debut, Bradley Cooper and the luminous Lady Gaga soar as they catapult the film high into a sphere of contrasts, where life’s extremes are on show. Electric, compelling and tender, the film is a knockout creatively and emotionally, offering a raw glimpse into today’s world of celebrity. Urban Cinefile
