A Star is Born (2018, USA, Bradley Cooper, 2hr 16 mins, Cert 15) is a drama with music following the rise to fame of Ally (Lady Gaga), a young singer-songwriter who has just about given up on stardom and is working as a waitress in a drag bar. Famous country music singer, Jackson Maine (Cooper), visits the bar after his sell-out concert and persuades Ally to join his tour after witnessing her show stopping performance.
