Storyline

Aspiring actress serves lattes to movie stars in between auditions and jazz musician Sebastian scrapes by playing cocktail-party gigs in dingy bars. But as success mounts, they are faced with decisions that 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. Written by Eirini

Trivia

Gosling says of his character Sebastian, "His heroes were born 70 years ago, and in this day and age, a great piano player playing real jazz is destined to work in bars where people don't even stop their conversations to listen to you. So how much do you compromise to be the artist you want to be? Gosling continues, I think Sebastian is struggling with the difference between being a purist and being a snob." "Ultimately", Gosling continues, "Sebastian faces the question lots of creative people are faced with: do I keep pursuing this work that actually nourishes me or do I have to accept that this is just a job and I have to pay the bills?"

Shocked me how good it was
27 November 2019 | by elijahzSee all my reviews

I remember when I saw the trailers for this movie, I thought it would be a sad but sweet love story and nothing more. And while it is that it brings so much more flare and beauty that I would never have expected from this. It took me three years to see it and it far out shone any expectation I had.
