I finally went to see La La Land this past weekend and it was fabulous. It reminded me of the old Hollywood musicals.
La La Land stars Emma Stone as Mia and Ryan Gosling as Sebastian. They both have dreams. She wants to be an actress and he wants to own a jazz club. In the pursuit of those dreams, they fall in love.
I enjoyed how their relationship was portrayed because they truly supported each other. There were ups and downs, but they always encouraged each other.
Stone and Gosling have a ton of chemistry. They played off of each other well and I see Oscar nominations in the not too distant future.
In the course of the story, there are great musical numbers. Mandy Moore, who choreographs the opening numbers for Dancing With the Stars, outdid herself. The opening number is amazing. I certainly wouldn’t mind being stuck in that traffic jam.
The songs are catchy. Even a couple of days later, I’m still singing some of the songs.
This is a musical that should not be missed. You will love the music, dancing, and Gosling and Stone’s performances.
Have you seen La La Land?
