Anne Hathaway has been a Hollywood staple for quite a while, even going so far as to host the Oscars alongside actor James Franco. With so much experience in the industry, she knows a good movie when she sees one. That's why anyone who hasn't yet seen A Star Is Born, starring Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga, should take her glowing Instagram review of the film pretty seriously!
I keep thinking how we move through things so quickly these days (how could we not?); I know my personal capacity to absorb something new is often maxed out. For example, a movie opens, we are "obsessed" for a weekend, we move on. I do this too: even when I really love something, I get distracted by the next thing, don't fully digest the experience and I quickly move on, like the world exists only to entertain me, like great art is unlimited, that my consumption of it as an everyday all-you-can eat buffet is acceptable.
She went on to describe A Star Is Born as a truly "special" movie:
We are so fortunate- a ton of worthy, excellent movies are going to come out between now and the end of the year, and our plates are going to become increasingly full. That said, I think A Star is Born is so special, so ambitious, so audacious and so brilliantly human that it shouldn't just be a news story for one weekend.
She's been in the film's corner for a while:
Even being so excited about what's coming out, I want to really luxuriate in appreciation for A Star is Born. I saw this film back in August at the Venice Film Festival and I still walk around feeling lucky I was in that audience.This film surprised me in the best possible way; it even killed some cynicism that I didn't know had snuck into my heart.
She thanked the movies stars and urged everyone to see it right away!
I loved it.
I hope you see it.
