Sensationally good

Four-time Oscar nominee Bradley Cooper (American Sniper, Silver Linings Playbook) stars in his directorial debut, alongside multiple award-winning superstar Lady Gaga, in her first leading role in a major motion picture.

In this new take on a classic love story, Cooper plays seasoned musician Jackson Maine, who 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, Jack’s ongoing battle with his own demons causes their relationship to start breaking down.

In addition to playing Ally, Gaga performs original songs, which she wrote with Cooper and a handful of artists, including Lukas Nelson, Jason Isbell and Mark Ronson. All the music is original and was recorded live.
