Janet's Take: #LaLaLand is a charming musical love story - one of this yr's best offerings. A+Although I'm not a big fan of musicals, I thoroughly
enjoyed this original story and its endearing characters.
Written and directed by Academy Award® nominee Damien Chazelle, 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 a city known for crushing hopes and breaking hearts. Set in modern day Los Angeles, this original musical about everyday life explores the joy and pain of pursuing your dreams. -Lionsgate
