'La La Land' (2016)
We are all dreamers at one point in our lives. It's just that some of us dream much longer than others. 'La La Land' is story about two special dreamers and their path to reaching their dreams. Set in Los Angles, Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone star as a struggling jazz musician and an actress trying to make it big in the city of stars. The film is a homage to the great musicals of past Hollywood like 'Singin' in the Rain'. It is even shot in Cinemascope like the old Hollywood musicals. It does a great job of creating a nostalgic atmosphere.
The nostalgia of old Hollywood blends perfectly with the contemporary storyline. Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone share great on screen chemistry and are perfect for this movie. The music, singing, dancing and the backdrop of lovely landmarks of Los Angles all blend to create a magical film experience.
