“La La Land” Movie Review

I walked into the theater to watch La La Land expecting the classic love story that you see in almost every movie, where a guy meets a girl, they fall in love, and happily ever after. What I saw though was quite different than that. I watched two artists find their way towards each other while they still chased after their dreams. It was more of a real life relationship than anything you would normally find in movies. Mia, the aspiring actress, is rejected over and over again to no avail whereas Sebastian can’t seem to keep a job long enough because of his passion for jazz music. They keep running into each other all over town and realize that they just can’t escape each other. Their relationship continues to grow as they both start to get closer to their dreams.
Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling were absolutely amazing. The emotion they were able to show moved the audience and made us believe that we were watching it happen in person. I could hear audible gasps and contented sighs from audience members as we became involved in Mia and Sebastian’s love story. The actors were able to embody their character completely and make us want to be their friend.
The soundtrack for the movie was incredible. The jazz music really went along with the story and showed the development of their relationship without any words. Stone and Gosling surprised us all with their wonderful singing voices and made us all believe that we will have what they did someday. The choreography was delightful. It was beautiful and elegant at times and peppy and upbeat at others. It went along with the story and the characters wonderfully and I wouldn’t have changed a single step.
I would recommend this movie to anyone and everyone. The actors’ emotion and the soundtrack made me feel happy and sad and everything in between. I am absolutely going to watch it again and let them dance their way into my heart, just like I hope they will to you.
