A Star Is Born

USA TODAY Weekend Extra - - MOVIES -

Plot: A fa­mous coun­try rocker (Bradley Cooper) takes a strug­gling singer (Lady Gaga) un­der his wing as their ca­reers head in op­po­site direc­tions. Di­rec­tor: Bradley Cooper

2 hours, 16 min­utes Rat­ing: R Up­side: Gaga proves her­self as strong an ac­tor as a singer, and Cooper amazes on­screen and as a first-time di­rec­tor. Down­side: While still strong, the sec­ond half of the film doesn’t of­fer the same ex­hil­a­ra­tion as its be­gin­ning.
