If you’ve noticed anything about me, I have a thing for classic films, vintage everything and am a sucker for a good story. I saw La La Land with very little prior knowledge except Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling were the stars and folks who I really trusted had fallen in love for it.
The film follows Mia and Seb through their meeting and relationship, while working on following their dreams in LA and what that means as time passes and they are in their late 20’s. I totally relate to the dream following vibe and did I mention that it’s (somewhat) a musical?
Emma and Ryan dance, they sing, they are naturals and I have simply just eaten it up. The colors are all gorgeous, pops of primaries in the wardrobe. I want most of the clothes that Emma’s character wears, especially that yellow dress above- and let me just say I predict so many yellow dresses to be in this spring and summer.
I’m also so in love with the music from the film. The opening number of “Another Day of Sun” is one of the catchiest songs around and John Legend’s character, Keith’s, number that makes it into the film is something I wish there was a whole record based around. The dancing is super on point and I was genuinely impressed with how well these actors did their numbers.
There’s so much that I love about this film, as you can tell. I’ve seen it twice in one weekend and am hopeful to revisit it again this weekend, too. I’ve barely seen any movies in the past few years, so that might show how much I enjoyed this film.
Obviously, La La Land is my aesthetic for 2017.
