A failing country musician starts a love affair with a woman whose undiscovered talent could destroy his career. Based on the classic film of the same name, A Star is Born is a beautiful reimagining of a beloved story, starring Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga, who makes her first leading role debut.
Jackson Maine (Bradley Cooper) has a long, successful career as a country musician under his belt. But while Jackson feels he has much more to give, his audience isn’t quite so sure. The scene is slowly starting to reject his work after years of success, and Jackson isn’t sure what he can do differently to win his fans’ affections back.
Heading fast towards rock bottom, things take a turn upwards for Jackson when he meets Ally (Lady Gaga), a raw musical talent who has remained largely undiscovered by the country scene. The two rapidly begin a love affair, sparked by their shared passion for music.
Jackson slowly persuades Ally to take her talent public, but he doesn’t anticipate what will happen when the audience that rejected him hears Ally’s voice for the first time…
Ally quickly takes the scene by storm, while Jackson’s career continues to decline. As one star rises and the other falls, can the love between them survive?
A Star is Born is the newest reimagining of the 1930s classic, and stars Bradley Cooper (Joy, Silver Linings Playbook), who also directs this as his debut feature length film. Lady Gaga makes her starring debut, following turns in TV hits such as American Horror Story: Hotel, with original songs from the artist featured on the soundtrack.
