“It’s pretty strange that we keep running into each other.” “May be it means something?” ‘La La Land‘ tells the story of Mia [Emma Stone], an aspiring actress, and Sebastian [Ryan Gosling], a dedicated jazz musician, who are struggling to make ends meet in a city known for crushing hopes and breaking hearts. Set in modern-day Los Angeles, this original musical about everyday life explores the joy and pain of pursuing your dreams. In the tribute to the golden age of musicals, Gosling and Stone can’t keep their eyes off each other.
“How are you gonna be a revolutionary if you’re such as traditionalist, you’re holding on to the past? But jazz is about the future.” In the trailer we see how the couple met and how they support each another as they cycle through various auditions, performances and rejections. ‘La La Land’ had its world premiere on the opening night of the Venice Film Festival on August 31st in the Sala Grande at the Palazzo del Cinema on the Lido di Venezia to rave reviews.
“This is the dream. It’s conflict and it’s compromised and it’s very, very exciting.” The film is a modern take on the classic Hollywood romance, which is heightened by spectacular song-and-dance numbers, as two dreamers struggle to make ends meet while they pursue their passions in a city known for destroying hopes and breaking hearts.
Written and directed by Academy Award® nominee Damien Chazelle, ‘La La Land’ also stars J. K. Simmons, Rosemarie DeWitt, Finn Wittrock, Callie Hernandez, Sonoya Mizuno, Jessica Rothe, Tom Everett Scott, Josh Pence, Sandra Rosko, and John Legend. The movie was released in theaters December 25, 2016.
