This is the award-winning remake of the Barbara Streisand hit.
Seasoned musician Jackson Maine (Bradley Cooper) discovers and falls in love with struggling artist Ally (Lady Gaga). She has just about given up on her dream to make it big as a singer until Jackson coaxes her into the spotlight.

83 year old Edie believes that it is never too late – packing an old camping bag, leaving her life behind and embarking on an adventure she never got to have – climbing the imposing Mount Suilven in Scotland.
Refusing to spend the rest of her life in an old people’s home – which her daughter tries to enforce – Edie buys a train ticket to the Scottish Highlands where she employs the help of a young outdoor enthusiast, Jonny (Kevin Guthrie), to help her on her way to the summit. Edie’s stubborn determination proves that ‘It’s never too late’ to achieve a goal, and Hancock’s convincing portrayal of a range of emotions – fear, excitement, regret, relief and joy – draws the audience into her ambitious challenge, while themes of age and friendship are dealt with subtly against the backdrop of the stunning Scottish landscape.
Societal expectations of older people are brought to the fore and subverted. “Are you fishing?” a young woman presumes as Edie prepares to make a boat crossing to the foot of the mountain. “No, I’m going up there!” Edie says proudly. “Oh, OK. Wow!” the woman responds in surprise. Equally, though, over the course of the film Edie learns to accept help from others after 30 years of being a caregiver to her ill husband.
