DURATION: 2 hours 8 minutes
STARRING: Ryan Gosling, Emma Stone, J. K. Simmons
A tribute to the Hollywood musical, but with a story embedded in present-day Los Angeles life, Chazelle’s La La Land is nothing short of a triumph. The transition from musical numbers to the powerful narrative is seamless, and Gosling and Stone give winning performances in this bewitching romance.
