Arguably the biggest premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival is, “A Star is Born.” The two leading stars of the movie are quite likely the most anticipated red carpet arrival in Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga.
#TIFF18 #AStarisBorn @starisbornmovie WOW. I’m blown away. Bradley Cooper’s remake adds layers to the story. Cooper and Lady Gaga have great chemistry. Gaga shows real vulnerability. Stellar supporting cast. Throw all the awards at this one. #quellegoestoTIFF pic.twitter.com/sUaA2tnTAQ

The movie marks Bradley Cooper’s directing debut and is the first time Lady Gaga has played a leading big screen role.
Lady Gaga + Bradley Cooper’s romantic chemistry is cinematic electricity in #AStarIsBorn. Musical moments = powerfully composed, remarkably free of flashiness. To call it a melodrama is a disservice to the intimacy of Cooper’s direction. One of the best films of the year #TIFF18

It’s a remake about a hard drinking country rocker who launches the career of a singer/songwriter.
Critics are predicting it to be nominated for all 5 major Oscar categories.
A STAR IS BORN is good but Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper are phenomenal as the star-crossed lovers. Deeply moving and convincing. They should be heavy locks for Oscar nominations #TIFF18 #AStarIsBornMovie #LadyGaga

A STAR IS BORN is a stunner. An absolute barn burner of a film. Lady Gaga is fantastic, Bradley Cooper gives the best performance of his career in one of the most confident directorial debuts ever. A major Oscar player across the board. #TIFF18 #AStarIsBorn
