An irresistible explosion of toe-tapping song and dance brought to life in vivid colours, that’s writer-director Damien Chazelle’s musical movie La La Land.
La La Land tells the story of Mia (Emma Stone), an aspiring actress, and Sebastian (Ryan Gosling), a dedicated jazz musician, who are struggling to make ends meet in a city known for crushing hopes and breaking hearts. Set in modern day Los Angeles, this original musical about everyday life explores the joy and pain of pursuing your dreams.
Check out my video review to find out what makes La La Land such a gorgeous candy-coloured clash between nostalgia and novelty.
La La Land is in US cinemas on 16 December 2016 and UK cinemas on 12 January 2017.
