La La Land 2016 WEB-DL XviD AC3-FGT
Plot: Mia, an aspiring actress, serves lattes to movie stars in between auditions and Sebastian, a jazz musician, scrapes by playing cocktail party gigs in dingy bars, but as success mounts they are faced with decisions that begin to fray the fragile fabric of their love affair, and the dreams they worked so hard to maintain in each other threaten to rip them apart.
An unashamedly romantic musical, infused with intense charisma and devastating emotion
I was interested in seeing this film because not only am I a sucker for a good musical, but I’ll admit to being a big fan of Ryan Gosling and I was intrigued to see what the director of Whiplash would do with a musical picture to make it fresh and unique. So when I had the chance to see a late-planned viewing at the London Film Festival, I jumped at the chance (FYI, Ryan Gosling came to the screening as a surprise post- film Q&A attendee despite not appearing at the Headline Gala the night before so I was chuffed!)
The premise of the story is that Stone is a young actress who has moved to LA to wait tables while auditioning to try and ‘make it’, while Gosling is a jazz purist (“Anyone who doesn’t like jazz just doesn’t have the right…context”, he insists) who plays the piano in bars to make a living and dreams of opening his own Jazz bar. Or to put it succinctly – “Two young artists meet and fall in love while chasing their dreams”. The musical flows thematically from first love to heartbreak and every other emotion between, with great music throughout.
