In this new take on the beloved Hollywood classic, Bradley Cooper writes, directs and plays veteran musician Jackson Maine, who discovers—and falls in love with—struggling artist Ally (Lady Gaga).
She's just about given up on her dream to make it big as a singer, until Jack coaxes her into the spotlight. But as his guidance helps Ally's career take off, the personal side of their relationship starts breaking down, while Jack fights an ongoing battle with his own internal demons.
"The hype is well-deserved for this one—Cooper has managed to mine something new about the glory and misery of celebrity." —The Atlantic
