What To Watch This Weekend Best Picture Nominated: La La Land
Los Angeles is a wonderful dream and a harsh reality. The same is true about being an artist in L.A.
The dichotomy of La La Land shows us how beautiful L.A. is for the fantasy it creates but how ugly it would be without all the dreamers living there.
The musical scenes are exciting and uplifting. The love story is realistic and one that you would want in real life.
The film holds true to it's title in the end. This movie is about fantasy vs reality and actualizing your dreams. Every artist knows that in order to achieve your dreams a sacrifice is needed.
In the end of La La Land you are left wondering if the sacrifice made was indeed worth it.
