La La Land (Musical Drama 2016)

Wow, such a good movie. I wouldn't think I'd like musicals since it was never my thing. I saw a few of them in college, and they were only okay, but film takes the genre to a whole new level.

Everything about this movie was very well done. The songs were not intrusive, catchy, and synced up directly with the plot. The story was a solid relationship-based one and all of the good music just added to the mix. The ending could've been taken in a few directions but I'm glad the writer and director handled it the way they did; anything else may have caused the film to go into tacky-land, but it didn't. I think the two primary actors did a great job, but especially Emma Stone and her facial expressions. No complaints; I thoroughly enjoyed watching this.
Rating - A+
