    Fourth time is the charm.

    Hollywood may be able to finally attain closure with A Star Is Born in Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga's rendition of the classic story. Bradley stuns in how authentically he performs his role as a depressed, jealous, and distant musician while Gaga finds another hat to don in this film in addition to her prowess as a pop star: actress.
