Just like Emma Stone said in her Golden Globes acceptance speech, La La Land is a film for dreamers. Well, for dream chasers, we say.
Set in Los Angeles, the film follows the thrilling romance between thriving jazz pianist Sebastian Wilder (Ryan Gosling) and aspiring Hollywood actress Mia Nolan (Emma Stone). Sebastian thinks that jazz music is dying but he sees himself as someone who could change the course of its direction. Mia, on the other hand, has been through countless auditions but ends up trapped in her day job as a barista.
