Lionsgate has released a new featurette for Damien Chazelle’s (Whiplash) upcoming musical drama La La Land. In the clip Chazelle and composer Justin Hurwitz give us a better understanding of the inspiration behind the film’s gorgeous score and it’s definitely worth a watch. La La Land is one of my favourite films of the year (even though it sadly looks like I’m the only one in the world who feels that way) and I’m really looking forward to a second viewing.
The film tells the story of “Mia, an aspiring actress, and Sebastian, a dedicated jazz musician, who are struggling to make ends meet in a city known for crushing hopes and breaking hearts. Set in modern day Los Angeles, this original musical about everyday life explores the joy and pain of pursuing your dreams.” Rosemarie DeWitt, John Legend, Finn Wittrock, Josh Pence, Callie Hernandez, Sonoya Mizuno, Jessica Rothe and Tom Everett Scott also star. The film hits theaters December 16th.
