A Star is Born

Bradley Cooper makes his directorial debut with this award-winning remake of the classic 1937 musical, starring alongside Lady Gaga. As alcoholism and age slowly sink his own career, movie star musician Jackson Maine (Cooper) helps a younger actor-singer (Lady Gaga) jump-start her own path to fame.

This is the third remake of William A. Wellman's Oscar winner, the first being the 1954 Judy Garland version and the second starred Barbra Streisand in Frank Pierson's 1976 take.

When A Star is Born hits its best notes, it has the wide, irresistible allure of a pop song that’s survived several generations, and will continue to do so as long as there’s someone there to sing it. Even if you’re not acquainted with the story’s previous cinematic iterations—the oldest of which dates back to 1937—you’ll instantly recognise the hooks.

What keeps the film from feeling like a mere rehash is the gut-level romanticism of it all.

"A Star Is Born" is that thing we always yearn for but so rarely get to see: a transcendent Hollywood movie.

Calling the new A Star Is Born a "valentine" from its star, Lady Gaga, to her fans sounds a bit coy and delicate, so let's call it what it really is: a hot French kiss (with full-on tongue), filled with passion, tears and a staggering amount of chutzpah.

Outrageously watchable and colossally enjoyable... supercharged with dilithium crystals of pure melodrama.

Gaga is a revelation, Cooper's on-screen presence matched by the restraint and tenderness of his storytelling as director.

Gaga is appealing, open and down-to-earth in her first major role.
