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.

Trivia

Chazelle felt there had to be a naturalism to the dancing. He told choreographer Mandy Moore that in this movie dancing, singing and acting are all just one thing. Chazelle told Moore "he wanted the audience to feel that Sebastian and Mia are real people who, for just a moment, transcend the confines of everyday life." See more »

Quotes

Mia: Maybe I'm not good enough!
Sebastian: Yes, you are.
Mia: Maybe I'm not! It's like a pipe dream.
Sebastian: This is the dream! It's conflict and it's compromise, and it's very, very exciting!

A wonderful and loving ode to the dreamers and artists of the world.
17 September 2016 | by ianzgreatSee all my reviews

When I first saw the trailer for La La Land my expectations were set high. The excellent cast, the music and an exciting new director/writer were enough to get me in the door. I'm always a bit hesitant when it comes to filmed musicals.. Will it be stagy, stilted and awkward? Not in this case. Damien Chazelle has made a wonderfully cinematic and loving ode to the dreamers and artists of the world. Having lived in LA and worked on both sides of the camera I can relate to much of this film's endearing observations, trials and tribulations; but anyone who's ever yearned for what seems impossible and searched for true love will also easily connect with this film's gargantuan heart. I'm a self proclaimed total movie snob not easily pleased by much of what I see, but La La Land gave me all the feels and more. I cannot recommend this film enough. It's the kind of film you leave and you don't want the buzz, the tickle, the movie-high to end. I can't wait to see it again when it's in wide release. The artist in me is inspired again.
