A Star Is Born – Movie Review

Official Synopsis:

A musician helps a young singer find fame, even as age and alcoholism send his own career into a downward spiral.

Review Summary:

Bradley Cooper’s remake of the much adaptated source material takes the story of a failing musician and an up-and-coming singer and roots it firmly in 2018. A Star Is Born¬†beautifully explores the culture of popular music, how the business tries to manipulate talented artists into products, and how sometimes one person can really make all the difference.

Both Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga give stunning performances filled with depth and incredible chemistry. The music, too, is a real highlight, as each and every song feels special and unique. This is a highly effective romance and one of the best remakes ever.
