'A Star Is Born' Review

The Discovered Superstar. It’s a tale as old as time. And when it comes to the latest version of “A Star Is Born”, it’s re-told beautifully. — For years Clint Eastwood was rumored to be directing this incarnation. But he ended-up choosing other projects. This paved the way for his “American Sniper” leading man, Bradley Cooper, to get behind the camera for the first time. Cooper also stars in this fourth on-screen “A Star is Born” as Jackson Maine (one of the best movie character names of the year). Maine is a country/rock superstar (think scruff Kenny Chesney). Cooper opens the film with Maine in concert at a packed, outdoor venue. The energy is so intense and infectious you feel like you’ve got a front row seat.
