LA LA LAND

Central Otago Mirror - - FOOD FOR THOUGHT -

Grad­u­ally this thor­oughly mod­ern up­date of the tra­di­tional old school Hol­ly­wood mu­si­cal gets its hooks (and har­monies) into you and by the end you’ll be en­tranced by its love let­ter to Los An­ge­les, bit­ter­sweet ro­mance and songs that stay with you for weeks. It also helps that it boasts two ex­tremely ap­peal­ing leads. Any­one who has seen Crazy Stupid Love will know the chem­istry Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling can en­gen­der and here both en­hance their in­di­vid­ual rep­u­ta­tions and their stock as Hol­ly­wood’s best cin­e­matic pair­ing since Meg Ryan and Tom Hanks.
