Hollywood's second favorite fake couple (behind Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper, of course) are back at it again in what could be their smartest, or their cheesiest, collaboration yet. LA LA LAND reunites Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling as sweethearts living and loving in the City of Angels. Oh, and it's a rather syrupy-looking musical, directed by the guy who brought us the tender story of a student drummer who gets berated by his teacher on a daily basis in Whiplash, writer/director Damien Chazelle. This should be interesting.
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.
