In this new take on the iconic love story, four-time Oscar nominee Bradley Cooper makes his directorial debut, and also stars alongside award-winning, Oscar-nominated music superstar Lady 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. Theirs is a complex journey through the beauty and the heartbreak of a relationship struggling to survive.
“This latest and fourth version is a gorgeous heartbreaker (bring tissues). Like its finest antecedents, it wrings tears from its romance and thrills from a steadfast belief in old-fashioned, big-feeling cinema. That it’s also a perverse fantasy about men, women, love and sacrifice makes it all the better.” New York Times
“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
“An assured rehash it may be, but it’s one that’s surprisingly slick, emotionally affecting and packing a final unexpectedly meaningful punch.” Radio Times
