Here’s what the distributor says about their film: “Mia (Emma Stone), an aspiring actress, serves lattes to movie stars in Los Angeles in between auditions, and Sebastian (Ryan Gosling), a dedicated jazz musician, scrapes by playing cocktail piano gigs in dingy bars. While pursuing their dreams in a city known for destroying hopes and breaking hearts, they fall in love.
In this modern take on the Hollywood musical from director Damien Chazelle, the Academy Award-nominated writer and director of ‘Whiplash,’ Sebastian (Ryan Gosling) and Mia (Emma Stone) are drawn together by their common desire to do what they love. But as success mounts they are faced with decisions that begin to fray the fragile fabric of their love affair, and the dreams they worked so hard to maintain in each other threaten to rip them apart. With modern day Los Angeles as the backdrop, this musical about everyday life explores what is more important: a once-in-a-lifetime love or the spotlight.
Composer Justin Hurwitz, and Lyricists Benj Pasek and Justin Paul”
