If you haven't heard all the talk about blockbuster success A Star Is Born then you have to be living under a rock. 

Girls (and guys) everywhere are leaving cinemas with tears running down their cheeks and a new love for country music. 

Whilst the movie seems to get you right in the feels from the moment that Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper perform Shallow on stage together, the tears really get a flowin' when the shock ending comes. 

Many fans feel as though the film should have a trigger warning prior to the screening. 

This is because many were emotionally distraught from a harrowing scene that saw Bradley Cooper's character take his own life.


If you are worried about your or someone else's mental health, the best place to get help is your GP or local mental health provider. However, if you or someone else is in danger or endangering others, call police immediately on 111.
