Mia, an aspiring actress, serves lattes to movie stars in between auditions. Sebastian, a jazz pianist, scrapes by playing cocktail party gigs in dingy bars and dreams of owning his own jazz club. Faith unites these dreamers, but as success mounts they are faced with decisions that begin to fray the fragile fabric of their love affair. The dreams they worked so hard to maintain in each other threaten to rip them apart.
'La La Land' is already considered to be the movie of 2017, with high distinctions (6 Oscars!) and general praise. Directed by Damien Chazelle (youngest Oscar winning director) which jazz fans will definitely remember from “Whiplash”, which screened at 'Leuven Jazz' 2 years ago.
