Visually gorgeous and deliciously colorful, this modern take on the Hollywood musical from the Oscar-nominated writer/director of »Whiplash« follows dedicated jazz musician Sebastian (Gosling; »Drive«, »Nice Guys«) and aspiring actress Mia (Stone; »Birdman«, »Gangster Squad«) as they are drawn together by their common desire to do what they love in a city known for crushing hopes. But as success mounts they are faced with decisions that begin to fray the fragile fabric of their love affair, and the dreams they worked so hard to maintain in each other threaten to rip them apart. Nostalgic, celebratory, and utterly captivating, this deft blend of long-gone filmmaking style with decidedly modern sensibilities is a romantically fueled, comically fun, and symphonically sublime treasure.
