Storyline Heading
Musician Jackson Maine (Bradley Cooper) discovers struggling artist Ally (Gaga) just in time since she is close to giving up on her dream to become a singer. Jackson coaxes her into the spotlight. But even as Ally's career takes off, the personal side of their relationship is breaking down, as Jack fights an ongoing battle with his own internal demons.

Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Drama Musical Romantic - This music-driven romantic drama is the fourth version of the story previously made in 1937, 1954, and 1976. Fans of the top billed stars, Bradley Cooper, who also directs, and Lady Gaga, in her first film, will have plenty to enjoy here both in terms of their acting and music. Other familiar faces such as Sam Elliott and especially Dave Chappelle, have only very small roles. Substance abuse, language, and sexual content make the film not for kids.

Critic's Review Heading

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Good Cooper directs with a sure hand, never overextending himself, and Lady Gaga proves to be a natural performer (she's more believable in the role than Barbra Streisand was 42 years ago). She and Cooper exhibit a strong, primal chemistry. The movie works because we believe in them and have a rooting interest in their star-crossed, doomed love affair.

Roger Ebert Full Review
Very Good This story has been told several times before—and influenced other similar romances—but Cooper and Gaga find a way to make this feel fresh and new. It's in their eyes. There's an unforced chemistry between Cooper and Lady Gaga that makes these characters easy to root for...

NY Post Full Review
Excellent Gaga proves her acting chops by trading in flash for humanity. Most thrilling are the stage sequences. Cooper often films Ally's thousands of screaming fans from her point of view — putting us in her lucky shoes for a minute. It's that feeling of exhilaration that makes "A Star Is Born” the best film of the year so far.

Rolling Stone Full Review
Very Good ...the actor-turned-
director's defiantly fresh approach allows A Star Is Born to emerge as a skyrocket of soul-stirring music, drama and heartbreak. Cooper and Gaga knock it out of the park. By the time the end credits roll, you realize that, in fact, two stars have been born.
