Kismet lovers from Gangster Squad and Crazy Stupid Love,
Hollywood’s golden couple Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling prove that their acting is a class above
In La La Land, whose title pokes fun at the city of dreams,
Mia and Sebastian find out what “forsaking all others” truly means.

Sebastian introduces Mia to his love for jazz

An indelible musical whose choices of notes are impeccable,
La La Land’s pace, framing and lighting render every emotion extremely tangible.

Emma and Ryan tapping to the choreography of Mandy Moore

Not just two pretty faces that will pass with time,
The duo’s singing and acting are really quite sublime.
Journeymen, now dancers, who had to step up to their parts,
Their performances have improved beyond those of preceding onscreen sweethearts.
While Emma and Ryan are two of the best,
La La Land’s a musical that’s unlike the rest.
Singing when upset might feel quite unreal,
So this musical shunts this norm for a more gripping appeal.

Aspiring thespian Mia searches for Sebastian in the audience

When opportunities come and opportunities divide,
Will this couple be able to rise with the tide?
Or will our star-crossed lovers decide to call it quits?
La La Land just might make you bawl as hard as I did.
