What’s that splintering sound? Oh, just my heart shattering into a thousand pieces.
12. La La Land (2017)
Sebastian and Mia are drawn together by their common desire to do what they love. But as success mounts they are faced with decisions that begin to fray the fragile fabric of their love affair, and the dreams they worked so hard to maintain in each other threaten to rip them apart. Hilarity ensues.
So, I’ve been waiting to see this since August last year. A musical, starring the Gosling/Stone dream team? Sign me the Chorus Line up!
I try not to get too excited over new, massively-hyped movies. I’ve been burned too often (Man of Steel, I’m looking at you, you colossal bucket of shite), but I was so desperate for this to be wonderful. I love a musical. I love movies about Hollywood. I would relax my “no babies from this vagina” rule for Ryan Gosling.
And I loved it. 10/10
