|La La Land Poster (2017)|
The moment I saw the trailer, I knew this was something I couldn't miss as I am a fan of old Fred Astaire movies. This movie didn't at all disappoint.
For those unfamiliar with Fred Astaire, you can start by watching "The Band Wagon" or if you are an Audrey Hepburn fan, you can watch "Funny Face." While not an Astaire film, I also recommend Gene Kelly's "Singing in the Rain."
Writing this review will probably just parrot what a lot of people have already said about it, but I can't help but want to pursue it anyway to show my appreciation for the writing and work done.
Before going to the theatre, I basically already knew what to expect. I knew there would be singing and random dancing but with a story that made those old movies survive the test of time.
After watching it, it is probably safe to say that this is probably one of the best romance movies that I have seen in a very long while. It was lighthearted at the right time but it also knew when to take itself seriously.
