Star is Born, A (15)

Romance, Drama

US romantic drama in which a country star helps an aspiring singer launch her career.

The critical consensus

A remarkably assured directorial debut from Bradley Cooper who turns in a career-defining performance opposite a promising Lady Gaga. A remake that captures the tone and spirit of prior films, A Star Is Born still blazes its own heartfelt, authentic path.

*****Terri White, Empire Online, 06/09/2018

Superb. Gaga and Cooper deliver Oscar-worthy turns in a remake that hits the high notes.

****(*)James Mottram, Total Film, 10/09/2018

Smart, funny and heartfelt, this A Star is Born is a love story for the ages.

****(*)Allan Hunter, The List, 14/09/2018

A certifiable banger, whichever way you slice it.

****(*)Adam Woodward, Little White Lies, 02/10/2018

Lady Gaga proves to be an inspired choice for Bradley Cooper’s remake of A Star is Born, and between them they make what could seem over-familiar feel fresh, vital and heartbreaking.

*****Alistair Harkness, The Scotsman, 04/10/2018

Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper are dazzling in this striking portrayal of the music industry’s highs and lows.

****(*)Mark Kermode, The Observer, 07/10/2018

The fourth remake of David O. Selznick’s rags to riches film of the same name is of the same high standard as its predecessors.

Features about Star is Born, A (15)

Female success and male decline: what A Star is Born tells us about fame, fear and feminism.

Hadley Freeman, The Guardian, 28/09/2018

A Star is Born isn't sexist or 'rockist'--it's a cutting insight into so-called 'authenticity'.
