New movies are coming out all the time, but the chance for a new, more exhilarating experience is here. La La Land has taken the magic of movies and music to a new era: Now.
Damian Chazelle, the 31 year old director of the modern classic, has also directed movies such as 10 Cloverfield Lane and Whiplash, which won numerous awards. With seven awards from the Golden Globes, including best actor and actress in musical or comedy, critics have had nothing but stunning reviews about La La Land.
The New York Times had included “The real tension in La La Land is between ambition and love, and perhaps the most up-to-date thing about it is the way it explores that ancient conflict.”The tale includes a young actress, finding her place in the world, meeting a traditional jazz enthusiast, who happens to have aspirations as well.

Their story, which has been nominated for 14 Oscar awards, is a journey that not only can be felt in the hearts of the onlookers, but can touch them even after the last scene. The amount of nominees are compared to those of Titanic and All About Eve.

The Los Angeles perspective is clearly portrayed throughout the movie, especially in the first moments of the musical. It’s impossible not to be inspired by the bright colors and personality of the city. The music enables people to fall in love, with its catchy lyrics and memorable melodies. There is no doubt that the tunes will continue to spin throughout your mind.
It’s been a long time since Hollywood gave off its trademark classic magic, yet this new journey throughout Mia and Sebastian’s story brings a new, yet nostalgic feeling to theaters. This story of love, inspiration, and the feeling of finding where you belong is an experience surely not worth missing. Movies like Casablanca and Singing In The Rain had audiences head over heels for their romance and comedy, furthermore La La Land truly brings that passion back to the Hollywood scene.
