Six of us went to see La La Land Christmas night at the State Theatre in downtown Traverse City. Each and every one of us adored the movie and would recommend it in an instant.
The music will have you swaying and toe-tapping while the story will hold you spellbound. It is so nice to enjoy a heartfelt and entertaining musical.
What was really cool was how the cinematographer focused on the musician or dancer amid scenes filled with other characters and then brought them back into the mix so effortlessly. The choreography was also amazing, but not over the top.
I fully expect La La Land to win many Oscars, hopefully including best picture. Of all the films we’ve seen in 2016, La La Land is easily head and shoulder above the rest.
