What’s the story?

Bradley Cooper takes on act­ing, writ­ing and di­rect­ing du­ties for this fourth in­car­na­tion of the clas­sic show­biz tale about a ris­ing young star­let whose career hits the strato­sphere just as her once suc­cess­ful part­ner nds him­self in the where-are-they-now? le. It’s not easy for any per­former to fol­low in the foot­steps of Janet Gaynor (1937), Judy Gar­land (1954) and Bar­bra Streisand (1976), but the eight-minute stand­ing ova­tion ac­corded the movie at the re­cent Venice Film Fes­ti­val sug­gests that Lady Gaga has man­aged it.
