Written and directed by Academy Award® nominee Damien Chazelle (Whiplash), 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 modern day LA, a city known for crushing hopes and breaking hearts. A studio-era style musical sporting a most modern sensibility, La La Land has it all: romance, music, ambition, heartbreak, joy and beauty, and an awe-inspiring opening sequence shot on the freeways of LA.
