Once again, it’s the tale of an older entertainer with a drinking problem who discovers and falls in love with a gifted younger woman, only to struggle when he sees her fame surpass his. This time, Lady Gaga, without much makeup, plays Ally, the shy chanteuse who initially doesn’t believe in her own talent or beauty. Mr. Cooper directs and co-wrote the movie.
A pair of stand-up comedians, Andrew Dice Clay (who does not appear in the trailer) and Dave Chappelle, are cast as Ally’s father and Jackson’s old friend, respectively, and Sam Elliott plays the manager for both singers.
