Winner of the 2017 Oscar Award for Best Actress (Emma Stone), Best Director (Damien Chazelle), Best Original Music Score (Justin Hurwitz), Best Cinematography (Linus Sandgren) and Best Production Design (David Wasco, Sandy Reynolds-Wasco)
Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling team up again for Damien Chazelle's lauded follow up to Whiplash.
Set in modern day Hollywood, La La Land follows Mia , a bored waitress who dreams of stardom, and Sebastian, a jazz musician desperate to create his own music. They bump into each other again and again, seeming to rub each other the wrong way constantly.
Eventually they click, while their respective crafts threaten to tear them apart. Set to a soundtrack both dramatic and catchy, La La Land evokes the glamour of older films for a new generation, and questions how far artists will go to achieve what they want.
Keep an eye on the subtle changes in Stone's character. We enjoyed the soft nod to Mia growing up, moving from the early piece Someone In the Crowd, desperate to be noticed by someone for her big break, gradually becoming more confident. Review by Cass
