An ambitious jazz pianist (Ryan Gosling) and an aspiring actress (Emma Stone) fall in love while pursuing their dreams of stardom, in this dazzlingly stylized homage to the classic Hollywood musical from WHIPLASH director Damien Chazelle.

What to do after the extraordinary success of WHIPLASH? For the follow-up to his 2014 hit, writer-director Damien Chazelle looks into the past while setting things firmly in the present, bridging two eras with a fizzy and exhilarating homage to the energy and optimism of one of Hollywood’s most successful genres. Drawing upon studio-era spectacle, LA LA LAND ushers the musical into the 21st century in all its brightly colored, anamorphic splendor, telling the story of two star-crossed young dreamers determined to make it big on the silver screen. It’s either stardom or bust!

A devotee of the jazz legends Bud Powell and Thelonious Monk, Sebastian (Ryan Gosling) plays a mean piano himself and is determined to uphold the values of the old masters. His plans include opening his own club, but to make ends meet he’s stuck playing tepid cocktail jazz in a humdrum Los Angeles restaurant. Mia (Emma Stone) is a movie buff with an eye for the classics who aspires to be a serious actress. For the moment, the closest she comes to seeing stars is serving lattes in the canteen on the Warner Bros. lot.

Sebastian and Mia meet cute no less than three times before diving headlong into a life-altering romance, but is their love strong enough to weather disappointment, compromise, and ever-burgeoning periods apart?

 

“During one musical number, when fireworks start going off in the sky, you can feel them going off in your head too … Here is a celebration of the artistic drive that is also a daring feat of showmanship, as technically accomplished in its own way as Mad Max Fury Road or The Revenant.” 
– RENE RODRIGUEZ – MIAMI HERALD

“For Chazelle to be able to pull this off the way he has is something close to remarkable. The director’s feel for a classic but, for all intents and purposes, discarded genre format is instinctive and intense.”
– HOLLYWOOD REPORTER

“La La Land succeeds both as a fizzy fantasy and a hard-headed fable, a romantic comedy and a showbiz melodrama, a work of sublime artifice and touching authenticity.”
– NEW YORK TIMES

“The real star in La La Land is the movie itself, which pulses and glows like a living thing in its own right, as if the MGM musicals of the “Singin’ in the Rain” era had a love child with the more abstract confections of Jacques Demy, creating a new kind of knowing, self-aware genre that rewards the audience with all the indulgences they crave…while commenting on them from the sidelines.”
– WASHINGTON POST

“Like a gift from the movie gods, here comes Damien Chazelle’s dreamy La La Land, right when a lot of us are in desperate need of some light. It’s a valentine to cinema, splashed with primary colors and velvety L.A. sunsets.”
– THE SEATTLE TIMES

“For all its borrowing and bricolage, La La Land never feels like a backward-looking or unoriginal work. Even when not every one of its risks pays off the way that first song does, this movie is bold, vital, funny, and alive.”
– SLATE

“Damien Chazelle’s musical, consistently daring and occasionally sublime, does what the movies have all but forgotten how to do — sweep us up into a dream of love that’s enhanced in an urgent present by the mythic power of Hollywood’s past.”
– WALL STREET JOURNAL

“It’s stunningly ambitious and thrillingly alive the way the best movies are.”
– ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY
