Movie review: “A Star is Born” shocks viewers

“A Star Is Born” stars Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper. Anyone could enjoy this movie, but teen girls and moms would especially enjoy this hopeful and tragic love story.

Ally (Lady Gaga) and Maine (Bradley Cooper) meet when Maine enters a drag bar desperate for a drink. He buys Ally a drink after she performs and he hears her incredible voice. Independent and confident, Ally is similar to the actor playing her, Lady Gaga. She doesn’t hesitate when she calls Jackson out on his addiction problem nor does she let anyone push her around.

Jackson and Ally’s relationship is the heart of the film. When Ally and Maine sing together, their love for each other is apparent. With its musical interludes, this movie will keep viewers interested with the hope that love can save someone.

“A Star Is Born” is a beautiful, tragic, love story. Maine was damaged beyond repair, an alcoholic and abusive person who couldn’t even be saved by the person he loves, but the hope to be saved by true love was always there. The end was shocking as a result. The music was beautiful. Their voices expressed how in love they were, despite the failing of even true love in the end.

At some points, the music is too loud, but it grabs the attention of the audience to help teens understand the way Maine felt during this time.
