Must-See or Skippable? Ranking The 2019 Oscar Movies
MUST-SEE: A Star is Born
A Star is Born is a deeply compelling film, but also a very sad one. Bradley Cooper‘s directorial debut is impressive for 18 different reasons, and his performance in the film is even better. His co-star, Lady Gaga, is equally great. Together, the two made one of the year’s best films.
Telling the familiar story of an aging rock star who finds and falls in love with a young star in the making, the two actors have incredible chemistry. This version of A Star is Born wisely puts the love story at its center, to great effect. Ultimately, it’s a movie about what love can and cannot do.
