I recently went to see the latest version of A Star is Born at the cinema – the third remake since the original 1937 film. There must be something timeless about the story of a talented young woman being discovered by a fading star, or maybe we all just enjoy a good romance. It intrigues me, though, that in the #MeToo era, we’re still entertained by the idea of a woman who sleeps her way to stardom. Does the fact that she succeeds make it OK?
I’ve developed this idea further in my latest editorial, which you’ll receive before Christmas if you’re a blog subscriber. In the meantime, I’d be interested in your thoughts!
