'La La Land' LATEST Review: The Musical Hands Down Is Rated The Best Of The Year! [DETAILS HERE]
Musicals are now making a comeback. There are a good number of musicals that came out in previous years. Some did well, some did not do well at the box office. However, this is definitely not the case for "La La Land" as it is critically acclaimed as early as now.
Emma Stone is known for her portrayal of characters revolving around the romantic comedy genre. One of her more famous movies is "Easy A." Ryan Gosling, on the other hand, is known for his romantic drama movies, "The Notebook" being his most famous drama movie ever.
Putting the two together is good as it is. Have both of them sing and perform in a movie musical "La La Land" is even a better idea. Both have good voices. Yes. But having their vocal prowess be seen on the big screen, couple it with dance movies and other nuances of a musical makes it nothing short of superb.
According to New York Times, the La La Land is a musical with big production numbers, intimate reveries and adult feelings. The movie is all about a 21st century boy-meets-girl musical. It revolves around love between equals in a story about an aspiring actress Mia, played by Emma Stone. She then meets an ambitious musician, Sebastian played by Ryan Gosling.
