Greystones Film Club: A STAR IS BORN

A STAR IS BORN (USA/15A/136mins)

A remake of a remake, in truth, A Star Of Born should have been a mess. And a box-office turkey. 

In actual truth, it turned out to be not only a very, very fine film but also a rather massive worldwide hit, a fact that owes a lot to its two leading lights. 

Bradley Cooper takes on directing and leading man duties, playing Jack, a highly successful, if fading, touring musician who takes a shine to Lady Gaga‘s young hopeful, Ally. Deciding to take the wide-eyed songbird under his wing, and on tour, that star is soon born, and the shifting dynamics put their beautiful friendship under considerable pressure. 

Having just won a Golden Globe, there’s every chance that stand-out song Shallow will sweep the Oscars later this year
