LA LA LAND
2016 | M | Comedy, Drama, Musical

The story of Mia, an aspiring actress, and Sebastian, a dedicated jazz musician, struggling to make ends meet while pursuing their dreams in a city known for destroying hopes and breaking hearts.

1) Did you like it?

Yes, but truthfully I don’t really get the hype.

2) Why?

I’m a bit of a sucker for a great musical, and La La Land definitely delivers on that front. Each sequence is visually enchanting, and the music is catchy and emotive. I don’t really see why it seems to be “revolutionary”, but frankly speaking I’m not a huge movie aficionado — for me this film was entertaining and charming and I’ll watch it again for a good time, but that’s about it.

3) “You would enjoy this movie if…”

You like quirky musicals.

4) “This movie made me think about…”

I love both Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling, but I can’t help but to wonder what the same script will look (well, sound) like with an actual cast from Broadway.

5) Overall rating?

3-stars
