Emma Stone And Ryan Gosling Bring Their Ridiculous Charm To The L.A. Love Story La La Land

EW: The new film from Whiplash wunderkind Damien Chazelle takes place far away from the bloody drumsticks and sadomasochism of a New York City music conservatory. La La Land, starring Crazy, Stupid, Love and Gangster Squad comrades Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling, is a musical set in modern-day Los Angeles. The title, a common pejorative for the Southern California metropolis, is not at all intended as snark — as is evident from this marvelously old-fashioned moment of song and dance in the film, where we see a musician (played by Gosling) and a struggling actress (Stone) express their blossoming love for each other via a Fred Astaire/Ginger Rogers-inspired waltz.

The story is too old to be commented.

This is probably my most anticipated film of 2016. Whiplash was amazing and I am a huge fan of the old 50s musicals and the old Los Angeles culture.
