When I realised that La La Land, the new movie starring Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone was written and directed by the same person (Damien Chazelle) who brought us 2014’s Oscar winning movie, Whiplash, I knew something worthy was coming.
The premise of the film is simple; a jazz pianist falls in love with an aspiring actress in Los Angeles (a.k.a. La La Land)…
On account of director Chazelle’s musical backdround, it’s unsurprising that music is once again a key theme in one of his movies. If somehow you haven’t already seen Whiplash, do so at once!
The La La Land trailer peaks my interest only slightly at this point. It’s probably something to do with the edit and what I imagine is my slight disinterest in watching Stone and Gosling as a couple once more. I first saw them cast opposite each other romantically in Crazy Stupid Love (2011). My fingers are crossed that I end up enjoying La la Land more than I anticipate. Especially considering my natural aversion to musicals.
John Legend, J.K. Simmons, Finn Wittrock, Rosemarie DeWitt and Sonoya Mizuno also star.
La La Land Release Dates: December 16th, 2016 (US); January 13th, 2017 (UK)…
Happy Film loving 🙂
