La La Land

la-la-land_2Although I don’t enjoy musicals specially, I found ‘La La Land’ a very good film. Moreover Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling perform masterfully the two main characters and they show that they can sing and dance as well than act. On one hand, the plot is the typical romantic story in which boy meets girl and so on. But on the other hand, the film also goes deeper with a reflection about success in the show business world. Music and songs have quality and fit perfectly within the film action.

Nevertheless, in my opinion the lasts minutes, showing what could be but didn’t happen, are needless and corny. Director Damien Chazelle should have chosen the sequence when Mia and Sebastian meet at Seb’s Club as the very film’s end.

Summing up, ‘La La Land’ is a good film but I think that it doesn’t deserve its 14 Academy Awards nominations to the Oscars 2017. Let’s see next Sunday…
