Damien Chazelle’s critically-acclaimed and Academy Award-frontrunner La La Land opens in US theatres tomorrow, and as someone who has seen the movie, audiences are in for a real treat. It is a glorious, gorgeous work indeed.
Now UK viewers sadly won’t be seeing the Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone musical romance until Thursday, 12th January, but to tide you over, here is a ravishing new clip from the film.
Seb (Gosling) and Mia (Stone) can be seen singing “City of Stars” with bespoke naturalism – laughing and fumbling pitch throughout – which lends kindly to La La Land‘s extremely honest, humane tone. Check it out here, and try not to fall in love…
Written and directed by Academy Award® nominee Damien Chazelle, LA LA LAND tells the story of Mia [Emma Stone], an aspiring actress, and Sebastian [Ryan Gosling], a dedicated jazz musician, who are struggling to make ends meet in a city known for crushing hopes and breaking hearts. Set in modern day Los Angeles, this original musical about everyday life explores the joy and pain of pursuing your dreams.
