Synopsis

Mia (Emma Stone), an aspiring actress who works in a coffee shop in a busy Hollywood studio lot in between auditions, keeps bumping into the disgruntled Sebastian (Ryan Gosling), a dedicated yet stubborn jazz musician who dreams of opening his own jazz club one day.

The two finally get together and Mia even begins to love jazz, but she also begins to lose faith in herself when yet another audition goes wrong. Sebastian believes in her and convinces her to give it one last shot, but she feels he's selling out when he joins a popular band as a keyboard player in an effort to make money for the two of them. Their struggles and differences drive a wedge between them.

  • 5 stars "Best movie I've seen in a long time. Captivating story with decent singing and dancing and great music throughout. It's inspiring to see a modern movie that's just plain fun. No over the top effects, violence or needless foul language and sex scenes. I'll be watching it again soon."
  • 3 stars "It's a decent movie, not one I would spend a ton of money on. Most of the songs were forgettable but i enjoyed the dancing and it seems all the actors and actresses had fun making it."
  • 1 star "I lost a layer of enamel grinding my teeth in frustration: the actors couldn't act, they definitely couldn't dance, and the story "line" was so ginned up it was drunk on its own delusion of grandeur. The only good thing about this film is when they LOST the Oscar at the Academy Awards."
