La La Land (2016)

Los Angeles, the City of Angels, can be the place of happiness and heartbreaks for artists and the like. This is the setting for La La Land, a romantic comedy drama with musical elements starring Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone in the lead roles as well as J. K. Simmons, Tom Everett Scott, Rosemarie DeWitt, Finn Wittrock, and Meagen Fay. Damien Chazelle penned and directed the widely acclaimed film.

As usually happens in Los Angeles, an aspiring actress and a musician meet, fall in love, and struggle in maintaining their relationship while also dealing with the pressures of a career in Hollywood. The pair also has the habit of getting into song-and-dance numbers whenever words apparently fail to express their deep feelings.

The film’s title refers to Los Angeles’ nickname and to the state of being disconnected from reality, an occurrence all too common in Hollywood. Watch Gosling and Stone sing and dance their way into your heart – log on to now!
