La La Land Review

La La Land is a romantic musical comedy written and directed by Damien Chazelle. The Movie was filmed entirely in Los Angeles and its surroundings. Chazelle has been sitting on this movie for a number of years as he was having trouble finding a studio to run with the movie as nobody was willing to invest their finances into his vision. 7 Golden globes later and most certainly a host of awards to follow including the very strong possibility of Oscar success, there will be a lot of studio’s kicking themselves over missing out on what is sure to be a massive box office success.

La La Land

The movies follows the story of Sebastian who is a struggling Jazz musician and Mia who herself is struggling to find her way in the acting world. Both meet each other in a low point in their lives when they are discouraged about their futures in there much loved chosen fields. Sebastian has just lost his job playing jazz in a music bar and Mia has just been turned down for yet another acting audition. These events lead to the two setting out together on a journey of self-discovery, compromise and of course romance which follows them over many years as they chase there hopes and dreams.

La La Land

The feel good factor is definitely set very high on this one with credit going to its main two characters Sebastian and Mia played by Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone. Their on screen chemistry is electric on the big screen. There are a lot of unknown musical numbers in here that you wont of heard of before. This was one of the main  reasons for the initial struggles Chazelle had with the studios for funding but the song choices were beautifully written and performed and will definitely not be unknown for much longer.
