    Anne Hathaway Just Explained Why Everyone Should See "A Star Is Born," And BRB, Buying My Ticket Right Now

    "I just wanna take another look at you." — Me, to ASIB

    ICYMI, A Star Is Born is THE movie to see right now. I went, I saw, I cried, I played the soundtrack on repeat. Basically, it's an experience.

    Everyone, and I do mean EVERYONE, is talking about how great it is. In fact, we made a list of 28 celebs who gave it nothing but rave reviews!

    But one celeb's review that stood out to me was my queen, Anne Hathaway's.

    The Ocean's 8 star shared a beautiful message about the film on her Instagram. She 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."

    She continued:

    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.

    "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."

    "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."

    "I loved it. I hope you see it. Bravo Lady Gaga. Bravo Bradley Cooper. Thank you. Encore 🌹."
