A Star is Born


Katie Warnke, Features Editor

A guaranteed new favorite, the romantic drama A Star is Born was released in the beginning of October. The film stars Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga as the story’s main characters, Ally and Jack. Jack is a famous musician, who meets and falls in love with Ally, and leads her to her own musical success. Jack, however, is struggling with alcoholism that sends his career down the wrong path, while Ally’s career is just taking off. The story features the ups and downs of their relationship and depicts Jack’s substance abuse unfolding as it changes the relationship. The movie is based off of music, and features many original songs that were written specifically for it. The final few minutes of this movie will take you on a rollercoaster of emotions and you might even shed a few tears. A story line that at first seems to be centered around music turns into a romantic drama that many people think will be up for an Oscar.  This film is great for the hopeless romantics, music lovers, or anyone who loves a good tear jerker, A Star Is Born is definitely all three.
