If ever there was a performer who completely and totally believed in the medium of cinema it was Bradley Cooper. This multi-talented performer has time and time again proved that he’s a sensation up on screen and now he’s ready to make his directorial debut with a new take on a classic tale in A Star Is Born.
Based upon the classic 1937 film, which itself has been remade two times, both in 1954 with Judy Garland and James Mason and in 1976 with Barbra Streisand and Kris Kristofferson, Coopers take on the classic story finds him as rough-around-the-edges country singer Jackson Maine who is beginning to falter thanks to serious substance abuse and burnout issues, but who finds love and the possibility of redemption with the talented, but shy singer-songwriter Ally (Lady Gaga).
Cooper appears to have thrown himself into the film and again challenges himself with a tough character and heart-pounding story of dream chasing and what it means to truly find your soulmate. Lady Gaga also steps up to the plate as Ally, a young woman who has lost her place in the world, but who with Jackson at her side just might have the chance of doing something extraordinary.
The production values look incredible on A Star Is Born and as an audience member you can expect some seriously amazing vocals from both Cooper and Gaga who really meld well together and who both shine up on screen.
A Star is Born is definitely for the dreamers out there and your heart is sure to flutter a little bit when this cinematic experience arrives on screen on October 4.
