Reviews

Musicalfilm van Damien Chazelle (Whiplash) met Ryan Gosling (The nice guys; The big short) en Emma Stone (Irrational man; Birdman). Mia droomt ervan actrice te worden in Hollywood, maar werkt intussen als serveerster. Sebastian is jazzmuzikant en speelt piano in sjofele clubs, terwijl hij hoopt later een eigen jazzclub te openen. De twee ontmoeten elkaar en worden verliefd. Samen proberen ze hun dromen waar te maken, maar is hun liefde bestand tegen de verleidingen en de teleurstellingen van het hectische Hollywood-leven? Alle recensenten zijn lovend. Ab Zagt (Algemeen Dagblad 22-12-'16) geeft 5 sterren: '(...) La La Land straalt een niet te beteugelen enthousiasme en hoop uit. (...) Buiten dat gevoel zit de bitterzoete film vol prachtige dans- en zangnummers. (...) Deze film wordt een onvervalste klassieker.' Genomineerd voor het recordaantal van 14 Oscars, winnaar van zes Oscars, waaronder Beste regie en Beste actrice.
