Tipped as an Oscar contender, Bradley Cooper makes a sensational directorial debut opposite Lady Gaga in tragic love story, ‘A Star Is Born’…
The Venice Film Festival is where the world’s top filmmakers unveil their new work, kicking off the awards season in style.
But this year, a huge gondola-shaking wave came from a first-time director and a leading lady in her movie debut. With ‘A Star Is Born’, actor/director Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga have made a sweeping love story that’s made the critics swoon.
Set in the music world, Cooper’s crafted a heartfelt affair between two talented, passionate people. He plays Jackson Maine, a veteran rock star struggling with addiction. His life changes when he hears aspiring singer Ally (Gaga). As they fall in love, her star begins to rise.
Can love help Jackson conquer his demons? Or will he decline and drag Ally down with him? As a director, Cooper captures the intimate moments that make their relationship feel real, but he hasn’t skimped on the scale.
Cooper and Gaga co-wrote the songs with Lukas Nelson plus a handful of artists, then sang them live at venues including Coachella.
But this is a film that places emotion above technical dazzle, as it poses a dilemma familiar to anyone who’s ever fallen in love. How do you care for your partner without losing yourself? And what if you’re the one holding them back?
By focusing on those predicaments, Cooper has made a powerful love story. Flagged as an Oscar contender next year, this is a film that will stay with you; prepare to experience a future classic…
