A Star is Born is the third remake of the classic Hollywood story of a fading star who finds purpose when he falls in love with a young talent. Bradley Cooper plays Jackson Maine, a musician with a drinking problem, while Lady Gaga takes on the role previously portrayed by legends Judy Garland and Barbra Streisand. For his first time directing, Cooper handles the film well, but it is Gaga who steals the show with her powerful performance and songs that she helped write. With a heartbreaking story, likeable stars, and a great soundtrack, A Star is Born is definitely a film with awards in it future.
