Just watched La La Land. It was a good movie, though IMO not deserving of 14 oscar nominations. I didn't find the performances that spectacular. What amazed me most were the technical aspects - choreography, costuming (I want Emma Stone's wardrobe!!), cinematography, etc. I love that Tom Everett Scott essentially got his role because the director loves That Thing You Do (where he plays a jazz loving drummer). I read that at the table read it basically just the director, Emma and Ryan gushing about their love of that movie (and with good reason). Plus he's sure aged well! This movie is probably the most attractive Ryan Gosling has been in a long time (though to me his best role will always be as Sean Hanlon on Breaker High). Huge kudos to him for learning the piano so well for the role (and John Legend for learning how to play guitar, which I never knew he didn't play).
