Cast

Bradley Cooper.
Sam Elliott.

A musician helps a young singer find fame, even as age and alcoholism send his own career into a downward spiral.

Jack talked about how music is essentially twelve notes between any octave. Twelve notes and the octave repeats. It’s the same story told over and over, forever. All any artist can offer the world is how they see those twelve notes. That’s it. He loved how you see them.

Hey!
– Jack
What?
– Ally
I just wanted to take another look at you.
– Jack

Maybe its time to let the old ways die.
– Jack

You stole my voice.

Look, talent comes everywhere, but having something to say and a way to say it so that people listen to it, that’s a whole other bag. And unless you get out and you try to do it, you’ll never know. That’s just the truth. And there’s one reason we’re supposed to be here is to say something so people want to hear. So you got to grab it, and you don’t apologize, and you don’t worry about why they’re listening, or how long they’re going to be listening for, you just tell them what you want to say. Don’t you understand what I’m trying to tell you?
– Jack
Yeah, I do. I don’t like it, but I understand it.
– Ally
Oh, I think you like it a little bit.
– Jack

Look at me. All you got to do is trust me. That’s all you got to do.
– Jack

You know it’s like, I dunno you… you float out… float out at sea then one day you find a port say, ‘I’m gonna stay here a few days’. Few days becomes a few years. Then you forgot where you’re going in the first place. Then you realize you don’t really give a shit about where you was going, cause you like where you at.

Can I touch your nose?
– Jack
Oh, my gosh.
– Ally
Let me just touch it for a second.
– Jack
You’re very lucky.
– Jack
Oh, really?
– Ally
Oh, really?
– Jack
Yeah, not really, that my nose has not made me lucky.
– Ally

Can I tell you a secret?
– Jack
I think you might be a songwriter. And don’t worry, I won’t tell anybody. But I’m not very good at keeping secrets.
– Jack

If I don’t say this then I’ll never forgive myself.
– Jack
What…
– Ally
If you don’t dig deep into your fuckin’ soul you won’t have legs. I’m just telling you that. If you don’t tell the truth out there you’re fucked. All you got is you and what you have to say to people and they are listening right now and they are not going to be listening forever. Trust me. So you gotta grab it and you don’t apologise or worry about why they’re listening or how long they’re gonna be listening for. You just tell them what you want to say.
– Jack

Maybe she’s a way out.
– George ‘Noodles’ Stone

You know, it’s like, I don’t know, you float out, float out at sea, and then one day you find a port, say, ‘I’m going to stay here a few days’. A few days becomes a few years. And then you forgot where you were going in the first place. And then you realize you don’t really give a shit about where you was going because you like where you’re at.
– George ‘Noodles’ Stone

There’s a friend of mine who came a long way to be here and she wrote a great song and I think she should sing it and it’s pretty fucking good.
