Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone channel old-school Hollywood glamour in this bright and playful romantic musical from Academy Award-winning director Damien Chazelle (WHIPLASH).
Damien Chazelle’s bitter-sweet love letter to the city of Los Angeles, the golden era of Hollywood musicals and the visual flair of French maestro Jacques Demy, is beyond glorious. It’s a perfect confection with medicinal properties.
Nostalgic without seeming old-fashioned, La La Land is pure movie magic. It’s a testament to the timeless, transporting power of cinema.
Reuniting composer Justin Hurwitz and editor Tom Cross, Oscar-winning Chazelle’s virtuosic direction is amplified by superb choreography and design. Featuring original songs by Justin Hurwitz and lyricists Benj Pasek & Justin Paul, Chazelle's modern reinvention of musical cinema promises to be a major player in the annual awards season.
