Plunging you into the musical world, La La land is a musical comedy- drama movie starring the beau Ryan Gosling, the gorgeous Emma Stone, John Legend and Rosemarie DeWitt. The movie tells the story of a jazz musician and an aspiring actress, who meets and falls in love in Los Angeles. Aspiring actress, Mia, keeps struggling to find roles in movies. On her journey, she meets Sebastian, who is struggling to pay his bills and is an amazing jazz player.

Eventually the couple start dating. Mia writes her own single- actress play which she believes will make her successful. In the meantime, Sebastian joins a group called The Messengers to play the keyboard. However, he quickly realises that the band does not play the type of music he likes, and is left dismantled. Finally, Mia does her play on stage, which Sebastian fails to attend… and the show is not successful. Frustration leads to a breakup of the couple and they go their own way. However, Mia gets a break from a famous producer few days later, which makes her a celebrity. Mia leaves for Paris…

In the end of the movie, Mia becomes a famous actress, and Sebastian opens his own Jazz pub. The couple sees each other once, but Mia is happily married to someone else. The movie ends with them sharing a smile, and content for each other for achieving their own dreams.
