Winner of a record-breaking seven Golden Globe awards!

Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone channel old-school Hollywood glamour in this bright and playful romantic musical from director Damien Chazelle (WHIPLASH).

Damien Chazelle’s bitter-sweet love letter to the city of Los Angeles, the golden era of Hollywood musicals and the visual flair of French maestro Jacques Demy, is beyond glorious. It’s a perfect confection with medicinal properties.

In a year dominated by division, distrust, and disappointment, it might seem strange to anoint a swooning -musical as the top film of 2016. But as the escapist Busby Berkeley fantasias of the Great Depression proved, sometimes the best medicine can only be found in a darkened movie theater.

Damien Chazelle’s thrillingly ambitious, unapologetically romantic La La Land is a movie that’s out of time and arrives at just the right time. It’s a balm for our weary national soul. Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone, reteaming from 2011’s Crazy, Stupid, Love (with sparks intact), play struggling young artists in modern-day Los Angeles whose dreams seem out of reach. At least until they find each other in, of all places, a traffic jam on the 105 that erupts into a show- stopping frenzy of singing and dancing. The next 120 minutes are just as intoxicating—an irresistible cocktail of heart-swelling joy and heartrending sadness as we follow the ups and downs of their relationship.

Nostalgic without seeming old-fashioned, La La Land is pure movie magic. It’s a testament to the timeless, transporting power of cinema.

Reuniting composer Justin Hurwitz and editor Tom Cross, Chazelle’s virtuosic direction is amplified by superb choreography and design. Featuring original songs by Justin Hurwitz and lyricists Benj Pasek & Justin Paul, Chazelle's modern reinvention of musical cinema promises to be a major player in the annual awards season.

Winner of seven Golden Globes: Best Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy, Best Performance by an Actress in a Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy: Emma Stone, Best Director – Motion Picture: Damien Chazelle, Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy: Ryan Gosling, Best Screenplay, Best Original Score – Motion Picture: Justin Hurwitz, Best Original Song – Motion Picture: ‘City of Stars’
