Their father is away, working as a chaplain in the war, and the family learns to lean on one another while spending their first holiday without him.

How Much Oscar Potential Does A Star Is Born Actually Have? Let's Break It Down
It's a Hollywood tale as old as time: a film generates strong buzz on the festival circuit for months, only to falter when it actually comes time for Oscar nominations. Despite receiving standing ovations at festivals like Tiff (2016's The Birth of a Nation) or earning praise for dramatic performances (2017's Stronger), some films just can't leap all the necessary hurdles required to make it into the race for an Oscar. Will the same happen to A Star Is Born?

Bradley Cooper's long-gestating project premiered on Oct. 4 to rave reviews for both his and costar Lady Gaga's performances, as well as the film's undeniably strong soundtrack. In fact, The Hollywood Reporter recently shared that at the official Academy screening of the movie for La-based members, so many people showed up that some had to be turned away at the door.

This Mind-Blowing Detail About Lady Gaga's 2015 Oscars Performance Has Me Spiraling

This Mind-Blowing Detail About Lady Gaga's 2015 Oscars Performance Has Me Spiraling
Bradley Cooper contends the moment he realized he wanted to cast Lady Gaga for A Star Is Born was at the 2016 Parker Institute Gala, where she fittingly performed "La Vie En Rose." (Gaga would go on to cover the same song for the movie.) Well, I'm sorry, but I think he's a liar. Why? It is my personal belief that a seed was planted much earlier - a year earlier in fact, at the 2015 Academy Awards.

If you can recall, it was at that show that Gaga performed a stellar medley of The Sound of Music in honor of the film's golden anniversary. The flawless performance served as a reminder of Gaga's talent, since it had been a few years since her previous album Artpop, which wasn't very well-received, critically, and her only other release in the interim had been her collaborative album with Tony Bennett.
