Film - La La Land


Just when you thought it was safe to go back to the cinema... They've done the do-re-mi on La La Land...

You'd better get working on those top C's, gargling with honey and lemon and watching who you sit next to as Winner of Six Academy Awards, La La Land returns to cinemas on March 10th in an all-new sing-along format. Yes, really, they've karaoke'd the whole film - with coloured words, little bouncy ball, the works.

In case you've been living under a rock for, like, EVER, La La Land has been the surprise musical break-out hit of the last year (apart from that time it didn't win the Oscar for Best Picture but we'll gloss over that). Written and directed by Damien Chazelle, La La Land tells the story of Mia [Emma Stone], an aspiring actress, and Sebastian [Ryan Gosling], a dedicated jazz musician, who are struggling to make ends meet in a city known for crushing hopes and breaking hearts. Set in modern day Los Angeles, this "original musical about everyday life" explores the joy and pain of pursuing your dreams. *collective sigh*

So, if you've bought into the hype, seen the film, got the soundtrack AND the piano song book, bought the poster, wondered if you'd look that good in a yellow dress (go on, admit it, you have) it was obvious that this would be the next thing they came up with for you to want to throw all your La La loot at.

Well, here's your chance to start practising a bit early... Ready? And a-one and a-two and a...
