📺 A Star Is Born (2018)

Watched A Star Is Born (2018) from IMDb

Directed by Bradley Cooper. With Lady Gaga, Bradley Cooper, Sam Elliott, Greg Grunberg. A musician helps a young singer find fame, even as age and alcoholism send his own career into a downward spiral.

A Star Is Born is an intriguing film. The byline could be in the midst of another. As Jackson Maine’s life progressively falls apart the question of depression and addiction as a disease are raised. With seemingly everything it can be hard to have sympathy for sadness. (Here I am reminded of Ben Cousins.) The problem that I think the film raises is how we deal with and support such people? So much of society still seems to silence such things.

On another note, I am glad that my wife and I went and saw it at the cinema added a depth to the music that does not necessarily come through when listening with headphones.
