A Star is Born
A surprisingly satisfying remake that succeeds because Lady Gaga can certainly act and Bradley Cooper, who also directs, can sing: plus there’s genuine chemistry between them. Ageing alcoholic Country music star Jackson Maine (Cooper) discovers - and falls in love with - struggling artist Ally (Gaga). But even as Ally’s career takes off, their relationship is breaking down, as Jack battles his demons. The end result is engaging, entertaining, and heart breaking. Emotional manipulation that works even if you’re not normally a sucker for this type of thing!
