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
The sequence which Moore dubs 'the gravity free dance' was one in which "we wanted the audience to feel Sebastian and Mia fall into the this beautiful waltz because they have no other choice but to dance in that moment." According to Chazelle, the coupling of Stone and Gosling was alchemical. He says, "there's a shorthand between Ryan and Emma, not just in person but on screen." See more »
At the beginning of the movie, after the crowd dancing scene, the camera quickly pans to the left to the girl in the yellow dress lying on top of the red car. After the pan, all the shadows of the people are pointing in the opposite direction, revealing that they shot the latter scene at a different time of day and the shots were combined to make it look like a single continuous shot (at 3 min 45 sec).

I thought it was a great movie. The plot did start out a bit laborious but it got better throughout. I had the feeling that there wasn't really a storyline in the beginning. But i'm glad I sat it out to see the rest of the movie because it was worth it. Obviously Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone are so well played together, because they did two other movies together before this one. The music is obviously amazing, I just got new earbuds so it was even better haha. I really love how the characters kinda 'flow' with the music while their bodies move with the music, right on 'beat' every time. So even though the 'musical movie' genre is not my thing i still loved it.
