A STAR IS BORN (2018)
2018, Warner Bros., 135 min, USA, Dir: Bradley Cooper

Sam Elliott stars alongside first-time director and four-time Oscar nominee Bradley Cooper and, in her first leading film role, Lady Gaga, in this new take on the tragic love story. In a role Cooper created for him, Elliott plays Bobby, brother, manager, father figure and conscience to Cooper’s booze- and pill-addled Jackson Maine. Bobby has seen Jack through the best and worst of times, giving up any aspirations he held for himself to usher his more gifted little brother through rock stardom. But the sacrifice has left a bitter taste for both men that even brotherly love can’t completely overcome. The cast also includes Andrew Dice Clay and Dave Chappelle. “Sam Elliott is wonderful. He breaks your heart.” – Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times.


LIFEGUARD
1976, Paramount, 96 min, USA, Dir: Daniel Petrie

But as his 15-year class reunion approaches, Rick is finally forced to ask himself what he really wants out of life and where he wants to go. Elliott’s restrained, beautiful star-making performance receives strong support from an exceptional cast that includes Anne Archer, Parker Stevenson and Kathleen Quinlan.
