Movie No. 20 (2017): LA LA LAND

La La Land (2016)
Director: Damien Chazelle
Cast: Ryan Gosling, Emma Stone

Stories about people chasing their dreams are not unique in movies. The story of Mia, struggling as an actress, and Sebastian, a jazz pianist, is not exempted. The movie, however, can only be interesting when the director puts something unconventional in the storytelling. I guess, this is where the movie deserves praise. Yes, the movie is original, but the concept is not. 

I enjoyed watching it. It's good. But, in my opinion, some musical movies some decades back are more memorable. 

Rating: 3.5/4.0
