Cast: Bradley Cooper, Lady Gaga, Sam Elliott
Every generation of moviegoers gets its own Superman and Batman. And apparently now each generation also gets its own version of A Star Is Born. This is the timeless story of a successful star that discovers a fresh-faced ingénue and then becomes drunk with jealousy when her fame overshadows his. The story was first brought to the silver screen in 1937 with Janet Gaynor, then remade in 1954 as a musical with The Wizard of Oz star Judy Garland. Barbra Streisand was next with a 1976 rendition. Lady Gaga isn’t exactly on the level of those three icons, but she is certainly pushing herself to places audiences previously didn’t know she could go. Co-starring as well as directed by Bradley Cooper ( Silver
Linings Playbook, American Hustle), the pair has strong romantic chemistry and even more impressive voices in this gorgeous-looking big screen musical. It features concert sequences performed live.
