Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga make A Star Is Born early Oscar frontrunner

Lady Gaga is currently earning rave reviews for her turn as Ally in Bradley Cooper’s remake of A Star Is Born. 

Between the glowing early critical reception for Bradley Cooper’s A Star Is Born and the cast’s endearing and emotional press rounds on the film festival circuit, a narrative primed for Oscars glory is already being written.

Variety has called the film starring Lady Gaga in her first big-screen role “luminous” and “a total emotional knockout.” Time said it was “a terrific melodrama for the modern age.” The Hollywood Reporter declared it “a durable tale of romance, heady fame and crushing tragedy, retold for a new generation with heart and grit.”

As the cast has made its initial press rounds – first at the Venice Film Festival, then the Toronto International Film Festival – they painted themselves as a family, trading accolades and praise for one another at every turn.

Lady Gaga has called first-time director Cooper a “brilliant filmmaker” on a red carpet.

The pop icon is delivering laughs, feels, and tears on the press tour for the movie. From Venice to Toronto, Gaga’s been giving interview after interview about this movie, and spawned so many viral moments in the process.

The recipe for Oscar favorite is being followed to the letter, CNN predicts.

“All that is to say, early buzz, big names, and box office bank are all unreliable factors in the race for Oscar. That, however, should not dull the shine of A Star is Born or the charming hope that it can deliver,” the news network says.

The film follows seasoned musician Jackson Maine (Cooper), who discovers – and falls in love with – struggling artist Ally (Gaga). She has just about given up on her dream to make it big as a singer until Jackson coaxes her into the spotlight. But even as Ally’s career takes off, the personal side of their relationship is breaking down.

A Star Is Born will be released in New Zealand cinemas on October 4, 2018.
