La La Land

Damien Chazelle/USA/2016/128m

Tickets from 01224 343500

Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone star as jazz pianist and aspiring actress fall in love against the sumptuous background of Los Angeles. We are led through the stages of their whirlwind romance as they chase their dreams, find success and meet its challenges. All of the above is expressed through song, dance and big, bold homages to classic movie musicals. Chazelle wrote 'La La Land' in tribute to the musicals he loves, while infusing elements of 'city symphony' films and the hard realities of life, love and being an artist.
