Storyline

Mia, an aspiring actress, serves lattes to movie stars in between auditions and Sebastian, a jazz musician, scrapes by playing cocktail party gigs in dingy bars, but as success mounts they are faced with decisions that begin to fray the fragile fabric of their love affair, and the dreams they worked so hard to maintain in each other threaten to rip them apart.

blahhh....blahhhh land
19 December 2016 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

A short note from a genuine reviewer - DO NOT waste your time even planning to watch this one!! One of the most terrible few movies I ever saw! And the most overrated movie next to Godfather!! This is neither a musical nor a feature film seriously lacking a credible plot or great acting. Ryan and Emma are just stone-faced monuments but moving! My time at the theater did not last for more than 30 minutes and I just followed the exodus en mass! And I am warning you guys - do not get conned by the critics and those who give 10/10 here. It should go down history as a worst movie made ever! All this hype is ONLY because it IS made about Hollywood. I am so shocked and aghast that this crap made 7 nominations for GGlobe and not a single for 'light between the oceans'

  • one of the best movies in 2016! This craziness is all created and


driven by the Hollywood prop machinery to boost themselves! Here's the mantra - As long as you make a movie on Hollywood dreams, its gonna rake all the awards however rotten it is!!
