La La Land, a fast-paced love story, comedy, and musical, tells the story of a jazz pianist who falls in love with an aspiring actress. The love interests, Mia and Sebastian (played by Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling), carry the film with their talent and on-screen chemistry. The movie begins with a massive musical number set on a packed Los Angeles highway, which sets the scene for a film filled to the brim with vibrant color and music. La La Land has its more cynical and realistic moments, too; it reveals the trials and tribulations of the worlds of show business and love and how they intertwine. Mia and Sebastian, who are both struggling artists, must choose whether to stay together or to proceed on diverging paths to achieve success. The film’s bittersweet ending leaves viewers satisfied, while at the same time melancholy. Overall, the movie was excellent, however, the final scene robs viewers of the happy ending they expected and so greatly desired.
