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

A realistic story (love the journey) of two people living in a world of La La.
26 December 2019 | by Tinc440See all my reviews

I was flipping through the channels a few years back and came across this movie about 2/3 in (had no idea what it was about...my favorite way to watch a movie). And, WOW, I was captivated by the two main characters...of course did not understand exactly what was happening. When I watched the whole movie I was even more impressed!!

I love piano so I was already half in, however, some will be turned off by the "musical" aspects of the movie. Give it a chance, it is all part of the character depth and the La La feel to it. The ending was very interesting and felt real.

I have so much to say, however, I'll keep my first review spoiler free. :)
