La La Land

Winner of six Academy Awards, this musical drama follows an aspiring actress (Stone) and unsuccessful jazz musician (Gosling) who, over the course of several months, keep bumping into each other as they go about their day-to-day lives around Los Angeles. As their affection and attraction for each other builds, each inspires the other to reach for new heights in their creative careers, even as they fall ever more deeply in love.
