La La Land

The night after the Oscars, we walked the 76 steps to our local movie theatre to see La La Land in version originale.

We were a few minutes late and ironically Moonlight was on the screen. It was only a trailer.

Sometimes when so many people rave about a movie it is impossible not to be disappointed. Expectations are too high to be realized and this was the case.

The opening dance scene was intriguing but gratuitous. I wanted to know how they filmed it and how motorists disturbed by the filming felt.

I remember none of the songs.

If I could come up with one word for the movie's acting, singing, dancing and plotting it would be "adequate" and am happy I paid 5 Euros and no more.

We thought it was seriously overrated.
