Mia and Sebastian are drawn together by their common desire to do what they love. Mia, an aspiring actress, serves lattes to movie stars in between auditions, and Sebastian, a dedicated jazz musician, scrapes by playing cocktail piano gigs in dingy bars, 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.

“Like the musical itself, the film has timeless charm and a brave sense of adventure.” – Mark Kermode, THE OBSERVER

“LA LA LAND is a film with strikingly broad appeal. Whether you’re a “Star Wars” geek or a hopeless romantic, a jazz fan or somebody who complains they just don’t make ‘em like they used to anymore, you’ll la-la love it.” – Mike Scott, THE TIMES PICAYUNE

“LA LA LAND wants to remind us how beautiful the half-forgotten dreams of the old days can be – the ones made up of nothing more than faces, music, romance and movement. It has its head in the stars, and for a little over two wonderstruck hours, it lifts you up there too.” – Robbie Collin, THE TELEGRAPH

“It’s a twinkling surface examination of how humans try to coordinate their dreams with their reality (a very Hollywood conundrum), but also a celebration of just how wonderful old filmmaking techniques and emotions look and feel on modern L.A. streets.” – Rory O’Connor, THE FILM STAGE
