Review: La La Land

La La Land is a curious blend of the old art of Hollywood musical and contemporary romance movie, and somewhere along the way it hit me really hard!

But when he catches the attention of a notoriously strict but skilled jazz composer named Terence Fletcher, Andy must drastically improve his…
