Is this a ode to Los Angeles or is it an indictment to the city? Come and draw your own conclusion. The film shows the conflict between personal life versus professional aspirations. The balance is hard to do. If beautiful music, dance and beauty are your thing you may like the flick. Ryan Gosling and Ema Stone are the stars. Damien Chazele (Whiplash 2014) director.
The film is in Los Angeles the tinsel town. There it is the city of stars: Hollywood. It is the land of dreams.
Happy Man: Welcome to Hollywood! What’s your dream? Everybody comes here; this is Hollywood, land of dreams. Some dreams come true, some don’t; but keep on dreamin’ — this is Hollywood. Always time to dream, so keep on dreamin.’ (Pretty Woman, 1990)
