Barbra Streisand stars as struggling singer becomes a star but loses the man she loves--who will not allow himself to hinder her rise to fame once A Star is Born. In this film based on the Academy Award-winning 1937 and 1955 films, the career of hopeful, young singer Esther Hoffman (Streisand) is launched by fading rock star John Norman Howard (Kris Kristofferson), who also wins the young singer's heart. Hoffman becomes a leading lady on stage and in Howard's life, but as Howard's career flounders, he sinks into an abyss of alcohol and cocaine. Hoffman chooses to sacrifice her stardom to care for Howard, but he will not allow her to abandon her dreams.

Critics Consensus: A lack of memorable music, chemistry between its leads, and an overlong runtime prompts this modish iteration of A Star is Born to fizzle out quickly.
