STAR IS BORN, A (2018)
In A STAR IS BORN, Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga fuse their considerable talents to depict the raw and passionate tale of Jack and Ally, two artistic souls coming together, on stage and in life. Theirs is a complex journey through the beauty and the heartbreak of a relationship struggling to survive. In this new take on the iconic love story, four-time Oscar® nominee Cooper (AMERICAN HUSTLE; AMERICAN SNIPER; SILVER LININGS PLAYBOOK), makes his directorial debut, and also stars alongside multiple-award-winning, Oscar®-nominated music superstar Gaga in her first leading role in a major motion picture. Cooper portrays seasoned musician Jackson Maine, who discovers and falls in love with struggling artist Ally (Gaga). She has given up on her dream to become a successful singer, until she meets Jack, who immediately sees her natural talent. (Note adapted from Warner Bros.)
