Fri 23th June: Films on The Narth - La La Land


(2016) 128 mins

Director: Damien Chazelle
Writers: Damien Chazelle

The one that thought it had won the Oscar!  Mia, an aspiring actress, serves lattes to movie stars in between auditions and Sebastian, a jazz musician, scrapes by playing cocktail party gigs in dingy bars, but as success mounts they are faced with decisions that begin to fray the fragile fabric of their love affair. 

Audacious, retro, funny and heartfelt, La La Land is the latest great musical for people who don’t like musicals – and will slap a mile-wide smile across the most miserable of faces

Starring Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone.

The Telegraph: "You'll leave with a tear in your eye and a song in your heart." (5 stars)

The Guardian: "Like the musical itself, the film has timeless charm and a brave sense of adventure. Bravo!." (5 stars)

The Sunday Times: "The fabulous La La Land is fizzing with life." (5 stars)
