I saw the trailer for a happy movie, a musical, a comedy, a romance, no violence, no killing, no war, the kind of movie that just gets you away from the real world, with Ryan Gosling. We have him in a musical, that is both comedy and romantic, do I need to say anything else?
Everybody seemed to agree with me, I mean it did get 7 Golden Globes:
1) Best Motion Picture- Musical or Comedy
2) Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy
3) Best Performance by an Actress in a Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy
4) Best Director – Motion Picture
5) Best Screenplay – Motion Picture
6) Best Original Song – Motion Picture Justin Hurwitz
For the song: “City of Stars”.
7) Best Original Score – Motion Picture
If this isn’t impressive enough, it is also nominated for 14 Academy Awards.
So obviously I had to go see it immediately. I thought it opened weeks ago so I kept checking every Thursday, but was disappointed every week. This Thursday, it finally showed up in the movie theaters so my plans for this weekend were: go see La La Land
. Then Saturday came and I went to the movies and I have to say I was not disappointed, it deserves all the awards it got; the actors, the music, the screenplay, the songs, the story, it’s all great. They all act, while they’re singing, dancing, playing instruments, act like they’re acting (Emma Stone plays and actress). It’s all entertaining and keeps you engaged with the storyline.
And if I can add something else, it has a great message that is very appropriate, at least for my generation right now. The world we are living in right now really isn’t the best place to find a job so, if they won’t give you a job, you have to make your job; it spoke to me, if no one will let you write for them, write on your own and start getting your message out there. Don’t sit around and wait for anyone to give you a chance, start making it on your own.
I highly recommend it and even if you don’t think you’re going to like it, maybe you will.
