Who’d have thought that Lady Gaga could act?  Or that Bradley Cooper could sing (and direct)?  I was pleasantly surprised to find out that both these things are true, and that Cooper’s directorial debut is a slam dunk. And look, there’s Sam Elliott in a heartbreaking supporting role, who finally scored his first Oscar nod!

Grade: A-
