The beautiful, sweet, and hopeful La La Land is also clever and absolutely absorbing.
Review by Matt CummingsThere's a moment near the end of Damien Chazelle's musical La La Land where we learn the bitter price that sometimes comes with Hollywood fame, as if life itself can separate even genuine love when dreams get in the way. That uncommon theme is brilliantly portrayed here, prodding its audience through song and dance to take an unrestrained and thoroughly enjoyable journey through what can only be described as the nightmare that makes up the Hollywood System.
