Quest for Oscars: “La La Land” Review

Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone are at it again, perfectly in sync with the best on-screen chemistry we can ask for. This duo stole our hearts in “Crazy Stupid Love,” but even more in “La La Land.” The only difference is they are swooning us with their lovely voices and exceptional dance moves to match it.

Palm streets, sunny skies, cute LA date nights, catchy tunes and a man that loves jazz as much as Sebastian (Gosling) does. What more can you ask for? This movie is the must see of 2016, and if you haven’t already be sure to do so in the new year. This movie will for sure lay along with the rest of classic romantic films.

“La La Land” will take you on a trip into the stars like Gosling and Stone’s dance did at the Griffith Observatory. Critics are applauding and rooting for this move being nominated for Best Motion Picture at the Oscars.

This is the perfect movie for a great date out that makes you want to drop everything and pursue your dreams in the “City of Stars,” also known as Los Angeles. What are you waiting for? Pack your bags like Mia (Stone) did to chase after your aspirations and find your one true love.
