La La Land. It’s rather extraordinary. And have already have seen it twice.
The story is about Mia and Sebastian, both with the desire to pursue their dreams in Hollywood. Mia is an actress and Sebastian is a musician. They meet and struggle to love and follow their dreams.
What makes this film special is the nostalgic and modern sensibilities smashed up together. It feels both familiar and fresh at the same time. And the talents of both Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling are on full display.
It’s also a musical, but a touching and affecting one.
My friend Tyler said he took from it that “Some dreams come true, some dreams change.”
This one is for the dreamers.
