I really feel that many good films have come out in theaters lately. On Thursday, I saw one of them : La La Land by Damien Chazelle (known for his movie Whiplash).

This joyful musical tells the story of Sebastian (played by the super hot Ryan Gosling), who’s  passionated by jazz and wants to create his own jazz club, and Mia (Emma Stone), who’s dream is to become an actress. The two characters meet at a point of their life where their real career is very far from their dreams and expectations. But unfortunately, when two dreamers get together, the dreamworld doesn’t always last…

I’ve already seen these two actors playing together in the film Crazy Stupid Love by Glenn Ficarra and John Requa, and, as I didn’t really like the film (I actually found it a little bit Stupid, as the title says), I had a wrong image of them, and I really didn’t expect that they were able to play in a movie like La La Land.

But I was pleasantly surprised anyway, and I definitely loved La La Land, for many reasons. First of all, because I discovered a new side of Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone, and I found them very cute in the movie. In addition, John Legend, one of my favorite singers of all time, was playing and singing in the film, and this couldn’t make me happier. Furthermore, as I am a huge fan of vintage clothes, old musics and the XXth century style, I couldn’t be more pleased to see that the story was taking place in the postwar years in LA (actually I can’t tell if the story takes place in the past, with some anachronisms though, or if it’s in the present, but people have a vintage style… we’ll check), and to listen to all the lovely jazz soundtracks (some were even played by Ryan Gosling, who is definitely very good at piano and at singing).

But finally, here’s what surprised me the most, and what made me like this movie even more : the unexpected end. Not that the end was incredible, it’s just that it was not the common one that we always see in happy movies, so obvious that it’s almost disappointing. It’s the one that makes you feel like the movie isn’t finished, the one that makes you want to know what happens next, not sad, but not as happy as we expect it to be neither…

I won’t tell you more 😉
