La La Land is a blend of the golden era of Hollywood musicals and the darker ebb-and-flow of David Lynch’s dreamworld. From lavish dance numbers to peering under the mat of Tinseltown, we get a curious rise and fall story about a pianist and actress crossing paths while chasing their dreams. Excellent performances from Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone guide this sleek and eclectic coming-of-age romance drama musical.
Moving with utter delight and whimsical charm, La La Land is equally adept at mining the depths, wallowing in the disappointment of unmet expectations and hollow fortunes. Smooth and mercurial, this is an entertaining, well-balanced, stylish and haunting romance drama.
This spiffy and surreal music romance drama is showing under the stars at The Galileo Open Air Cinema.
