Bradley Cooper has had a story to tell for a long time — about fame, addiction, his relationship with his dad.
The stars aligned when he was given the chance to direct his first film: a new take on A Star Is Born.
In Cooper's movie, the main architecture of the narrative is still there. A famous musician falls for a regular girl with a magical voice and makes her a star, while his own troubles come to the surface. The most famous version is the 1976 movie with Barbra Streisand and Kris Kristofferson.
