La La Land

Set in modern day Los Angeles, this modern take on the Hollywood musical comes from Damien Chazelle, the Academy Award-nominated writer and director of Whiplash.

LA LA LAND tells the story of Mia [Emma Stone], an aspiring actress, who serves lattes to movie stars as a barista at a local coffee shop, and Sebastian [Ryan Gosling], a dedicated jazz musician, who plays dingy bars in order to scrape by.

Both characters are struggling to make ends meet in a city known for crushing hopes and breaking hearts in a film about everyday life that explores the joy and pain of pursuing your dreams.

The two meet and fall in love, but, as success mounts, the dreams they worked so hard to maintain threaten to tear them apart.
