Synopsis

In this new take on the iconic love story, Bradley Cooper makes his directorial debut and portrays seasoned musician Jackson Maine, who discovers and falls in love with struggling artist Ally, played by Lady Gaga. Ally has given up on her dream to become a successful singer until she meets Jack, who immediately sees her raw talent. This intimate story takes us on a journey through the beauty and challenges of a relationship struggling to survive.

Director’s Statement

It all comes down to this broken love story. You can’t control what moves you and I’ve always wanted to tell a love story. To me, music is the purest way to communicate... so, at a certain point, I just had to jump. I’ve always been interested in the filmmaking process. I’ve been fortunate enough to have worked with directors who have let me into their process. I had the luxury of time with this project, which was key. I was able to take the time to write, to work on the music, to work on the script, to rehearse, etc., for three years. I’ve been a music fan my whole life. To be able to tell this story – through music – really has been a dream come true.
