Do you remember the last time you watched a movie and it made your heart sing? Made you laugh and cry and want to stand up and clap like a crazy person?

Well, that is what La La Land did for me when I watched it on Friday night. It was as if someone took a regular movie and sprinkled it with magic fairy dust. When Ryan and Emma started tap-dancing, I leaned over to Matt and whispered “I’ve died and gone to heaven”.

Granted, tap dancing might not sell you. But aΒ Golden Globe winning performance by Ryan Gosling will.

La La Land is the story of a quirky musician and a wannabe actress who strike up a grand love affair – a romance that is tested as their careers begin to pull them apart.

Yes, it’s a movie musical, but not the gag-inducing kind. This film is beautiful and enchanting.Β Described as a bitter-sweet love letter to old Hollywood, there really is no better description for La La Land. As someone who has always dreamed of working on a film set, this movie only served to swell my desire. Watch the teasers and you’ll see what I mean. It’s my new favouritist movie ever!

Much love, Katie x
