A Star Is Born (Extended Edition!)

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 SNIPER, AMERICAN HUSTLE, SILVER LININGS PLAYBOOK) makes his directorial debut, and also stars alongside multiple award-winning superstar Lady 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. She has given up on her dream to become a successful singer, until she meets Jack, who immediately sees her natural talent.

A STAR IS BORN has become a huge commercial and critical success (including a whopping 8 Oscar nods), thanks in no small part to the pair’s undeniable chemistry – and a killer soundtrack, which includes the Oscar-winning anthem ‘Shallow.’ Also starring Sam Elliott, Andrew Dice Clay, Rafi Gavvron, Anthony Ramos, Dave Chappelle.

“What Cooper persuasively depicts is the fear factor of stardom-the sense of vulnerability, of a position that’s both powerful and fragile.” (The New Yorker)

“This movie has everything: a swept-off-your-feet romantic fantasy, an underdog-makes-good journey, a wrenching substance abuse drama, and an industry cautionary tale combined.” (BuzzFeed News)

“Melodrama gets a bad rap sometimes.” (NPR)

She has just about given up on her dream to make it big as a singer — until Jack coaxes her into the spotlight. But even as Ally’s career takes off, the personal side of their relationship is breaking down, as Jack fights an ongoing battle with his own internal demons.
