The story of Dick Cheney, an unassuming bureaucratic Washington insider, who quietly wielded immense power as Vice President to George W. Bush, reshaping the country and the globe in ways that we still feel today.
Seasoned musician Jackson Maine (Bradley Cooper) discovers-and falls in love with-struggling artist Ally (Gaga). 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.Written by
The studio and producers desperately wanted Beyoncé for the role of Ally. She was attached to the project back in 2015, but decided to pass on it to focus on her music. Writer Camilla Blackett was in talks to re-write Bradley Cooper's script then and stated that the first thing she said in the meeting was that Beyoncé didn't have nearly enough lines. She also stated the original screenplay is very different from the final film. See more »

An extended version of the film, dubbed the "Encore Edition" with an additional 12 minutes of new footage, was released on March 1, 2019 for a limited one-week engagement. The material consists of longer takes of musical numbers, as well as a brand-new, never-before-seen song "Clover", by Ally and Jackson. See more »
Awesome debut for Cooper's direction and Gaga's acting in a long-featured film
It will be nominated for several Oscars and win "best original song" for sure.
Whether you love Gaga as a singer or not, let's just appreciate and enjoy this amazing work by a new actress, LadyGaga. Sam and Bradley are also brilliant in their character. A Star Is Born is not the typical genre of movie like Moonlight/Spotlight/Blackkklansman that will probably snatch Oscars for best picture, but I can promise it will still do well in the award seasons. To sum up, it will gain both commercial and critical success. Just enjoy it as a romantic/musical film!
