RULES DON’T AP­PLY (M)

THE LAW OF THE LA LA LAND, US, 126 MIN

The Gold Coast Bulletin - Gold Coast Eye - - FLICKS -

A pleas­ing, if in­con­se­quen­tial tri­fle of a ro­mance. In 1958 Los An­ge­les, fa­mously ec­cen­tric bil­lion­aire Howard Hughes (War­ren Beatty) is still pursuing his favourite hobby: promis­ing a pretty young star­let the world, un­til the next pretty young star­let comes along. The lat­est in­genue caught in Hughes’ el­lip­ti­cal or­bit is Marla (Lily Collins). Be­tween act­ing lessons and sum­mit meet­ings with her men­tor, Marla is spir­ited around town by Frank (Alden Ehren­re­ich), a young driver on the Hughes pay­roll.
