A Star Is Born follows the story of a wannabe musician who catches the eye of a famous rock star.  It follows all the hardships a career in music can bring.

Having seen the trailer, I had high hopes for the film, and it delivered.  Who knew Bradley Cooper could sing and write songs?!  Having not seen any of the other remakes/original, I can’t comment whether it is true to the story, but I can say that it does hold its own as an amazing film in every aspect.

The music has a slight country/rock edge to it and makes you feel like you are in deep south America.  Even though there was a lot of focus on the songs, the movie never felt like it turned into a musical, it complimented the film in a way that it fitted like a glove.

Lady Gaga is the full package.  Her acting, singing and song writing talents truly shone through.  As her first feature film, she was award worthy, the chemistry between herself and Cooper looked and felt so natural.

Even if you think this film is not for you, it is definitely worth a watch.
