Written and directed by Academy Award nominee Damien Chazelle, La La Land, according to production notes, “tells the story of Mia [Emma Stone], an aspiring actress, and Sebastian [Ryan Gosling], 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.”
The film musical opens in New York and Los Angeles December 9 and will be released nationwide December 16.
