The first time I heard about this movie I was curious. I’m a huge fan of Lady Gaga, but Bradley Cooper directing AND also staring and singing in the movie? I didn’t know what to think. With that said, I just saw the trailer for the movie, and I have chills. I’m a sucker for a good music movie, I’ll watch anything about a musician, fictional or not.
Bradley Cooper decided to make his directorial debut remaking the classic movie “A Star Is Born” from 1937. He also co-wrote it and co-stars in it. Cooper’s character is country singer-songwriter Jackson Maine who struggles with alcoholism. However his life changes when he finds Ally played by Lady Gaga singing in a nightclub. She struggles with her own insecurities and together they help each other in their own careers as they fall in love.
Lady Gaga wrote many original songs for the film along with Cooper and other artists, including Lukas Nelson, Jason Isbell and Mark Ronson. All of the movie’s music is original and was recorded live, which only turns me on to this movie more.
The movie hits theaters October 5th. Get your taste of the romantic musical drama below.
