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!


Hathaway wrote:

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.
Bravo @ladygaga.
Bravo #bradleycooper.
Thank you.

People on the internet couldn't agree with Hathaway more:

We're never that surprised when we encounter people who are lackluster at their jobs. Bad waiters, rude customer service people, dishonest contractors, or inept colleagues abound throughout daily life.

But it's interesting that we expect to encounter that kind of ineptitude far less with certain professionals.

On the internet, people tend to say things they likely would not in the real world. The anonymity of a forum or comment section--composed only of verbal contributions beneath made up names--compels us to socialize with less inhibition; we take more risks with the peers we can't see in the flesh.
