A Star is Born is a must-see remake of the 1976 hit film A Star is Born (which was also a remake). Bradley Cooper stars in the movie as Jackson Maine, a famous rock star, and Lady Gaga is Ally, a struggling musician. This riveting romantic movie with a modern-musical twist will have everyone running for the theaters to see it.

First hitting the theaters on October 5th of this year, A Star is Born is about a woman, Ally, who has almost given up on her dream of becoming a famous singer when she is discovered, through a drunken mistake, by Jackson Maine. He offers to buy her a drink and their relationship blossoms from there. However, Jack has a burden that comes along with all of his success and charm.

Although the movie is longer than your average film, it is not a concern because the story line has the viewer hooked and mesmerized by the characters’ beautifully twisted love story. No other main characters are necessary as they would take away from the main focus of the film. Throughout the entire film the emphasis was kept on Ally and Jackson, which makes them more personal and intimate to watch.

The film has one small problem, and it has to do with the ending. The final scene should have been emotional and hard hitting, but it was rushed when it should have left the audience speechless. Regardless, Lady Gaga’s performance, which concluded the movie, was fantastic and really captivated the audience.

Overall, I would definitely recommend A Star is Born. The film was mesmerizing and brilliantly filmed, with excellent camera shots as well as a personal insight to the characters’ lives. It is definitely a movie that I would watch again with the same amount of passion as when I saw it the first time.
