Jackson is a rock singer, writer, and musician with a huge following.  But with a constant high pitch tone in his ear; he drinks alcohol, takes pills, and takes steroids to cope.  After an amazing show, he decides he can’t go home and ask his driver Wolfie to find a bar.  Jackson sees Bleu Bleu.  Ramon knows Jackson is a rock star and warns him this may not be his kind of place.  Jackson believes if it has a bar, it’s his kind of place.  Inside Jackson learns that he has entered Bleu Bleu’s Drag Night.  He just sits back and enjoys the show.  At that moment, Ally hits the stage and sings La Vie en Rose.  He sees something in her and has to get to know her (FTC Affiliate Disclaimer).  After Ramon introduces his friend Ally to Jackson, the two talk and Ally confesses that she has tried to enter the industry but her looks have stopped her from getting a record deal.  He tells her he loves her looks and he will have Wolfie pick her up to take her to his show tomorrow.  She declines but wakes up to Wolfie at her front door waiting.  She ignores Wolfie and goes to work.  When Ally’s boss reprimands her for being late, she quits and takes Ramon with her.  They get in Jackson’s car and head to the show.  That split decision will change their careers and lives.

Just wow.  While this movie follows 1937 original and its 1954 remake (it differs from the 1976 remake), it is modern without being completely drowned in social media cliques (FTC Affiliate Disclaimer).  Social media is only referenced the first time Ally goes on stage with Jackson.  Her views give her the confidence she needs to leave the world behind and go on tour with Jackson.  The two connect on the road and grow into a strong, believable couple.  While the romance is quick, it doesn’t feel rushed.  You will view the two connect on a deeper level of creativity.  Lady Gaga not only reminds the viewers of her voice but introduces the world to her acting ability.  And while we know Bradley Cooper as a stand out actor, this directorial debut is a force to be reckoned with.  With all the emotions you will experience, you will also get a cringe factor as Ally goes from rock/soul singer to pop star.  While her star rises, her lyrics become shallow.  As Jackson’s love life gives him hope, hanging on to his career causes him to lose is faith.  This movie will have you singing and dancing in your seat; then you will want to buy the soundtrack (FTC Affiliate Disclaimer).

I give it 5 out of 5 stars

I don’t wanna go home – Jackson

Yes, I do. I really don’t like it but I understand – Ally
