When I was a little girl, my Mom made me sit down and watch A Star Is Born with her. I didn’t know what I was watching and to be honest – I took it for granted.
But as I look back, I know that I was watching a movie that greatly influenced my Mom, and there fore greatly influenced me. Now, I have a chance to watch it again – but only this time it will be with Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper. And guys, quite frankly, the trailer blew me the hell away.
So good, right? So flawless and beautiful and hits you right in the heart.
“A Star is Born” stars four-time Oscar nominee Bradley Cooper (“American Sniper,” “American Hustle,” “Silver Linings Playbook”) and multiple award-winning, Oscar-nominated music superstar Lady Gaga, in her first leading role in a major motion picture. Cooper helms the drama, marking his directorial debut.
In this new take on the tragic love story, he plays seasoned musician Jackson Maine, who discovers—and falls in love with—struggling artist Ally (Gaga). She has just about given up on her dream to make it big as a singer… until Jack coaxes her into the spotlight. But even as Ally’s career takes off, the personal side of their relationship is breaking down, as Jack fights an ongoing battle with his own internal demons.
The cast of “A Star is Born” also includes Andrew Dice Clay, with Dave Chappelle and Sam Elliott.
“A Star is Born” is produced by Bill Gerber, Jon Peters, Bradley Cooper, Todd Phillips and Lynette Howell Taylor. Ravi Mehta, Basil Iwanyk, Niija Kuykendall, Sue Kroll, Michael Rapino and Heather Parry serve as executive producers. The screenplay is by Eric Roth and Bradley Cooper & Will Fetters.
It’s time to sit down and rewatch the original, while preparing myself for the remake.
The movie is set to hit theaters October 5, 2018.
