Aro Favourite La La Land


USA 2016,
Dir. Damien Chazelle
Rating: [M]
Genres: Drama, Comedy / Musical, Romance


“A film you simply never want to stop watching.”~Jessica Kiang, The Playlist

Aroview: The wunderkind director of WHIPLASH fashions another bold, contemporary love letter to the Jazz age, this time as a widescreen, technicolor romantic Hollywood musical that has the craft and the chutzpah to transport and uplift the viewer in a way that classic musicals were designed to do.

Totally irresistible for die-hard romantics, this hardly puts a foot wrong if you are prepared to go with it, though its enormous success also met with inevitable hype scepticism. Famously and embarrassingly "robbed" of its expected Best Picture Oscar at the 2017 Academy Awards, though Emma Stone didn't have to give her award back, thoroughly deserving her Best Actress honour with a beguilingly expressive performance.
