La La Land
A wistful and wonderful delve back into the classic Hollywood romantic musical, Damien Chazelle’s jazz-infused charmer brims with passion, wit and warmth, as it tells the story of a star-crossed pair of lovers – Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling – all set against the backdrop of a beautifully shot Los Angeles. A simple film at heart – a jazz-loving pianist falls for a would-be actress – it is a lovely coming together of UMBRELLAS OF CHERBOURG, SINGIN’ IN THE RAIN, and AN AMERICAN IN PARIS and will delight lovers of the classic musical, a genre that rarely makes it to the big screen these days.
