Below is the synopsis of "A Star is Born," per Rotten Tomatoes.

In "A Star Is Born," Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga fuse their considerable talents to depict the raw and passionate tale of Jack and Ally, two artistic souls coming together, on stage and in life. Theirs is a complex journey through the beauty and the heartbreak of a relationship struggling to survive. In this new take on the iconic love story, four-time Oscar nominee Cooper ("American Sniper," "American Hustle," "Silver Linings Playbook"), makes his directorial debut, and also stars alongside multiple award-winning, Oscar-nominated music superstar Gaga in her first leading role in a major motion picture. 
Cooper portrays seasoned musician Jackson Maine, who discovers and falls in love with struggling artist Ally. She has given up on her dream to become a successful singer, until she meets Jack, who immediately sees her natural talent.

 "A Star is Born" has grossed over $420 million at the global box office, and holds a fresh rating of 90 percent and an audience score of 80 percent on Rotten Tomatoes. Not bad for the official fourth remake of "A Star Is Born." 

The movie's lead soundtrack single "Shallow" also peaked within the top five on the Billboard Hot 100 and won two GRAMMYs for Best Song Written for Visual Media and Best Pop Duo/Group Performance.
