La La Land is haunting me.

In the most glorious, magical way, it’s literally haunting me.

All I can think about is that daggum opening scene where they are all dancing on the cars during rush hour traffic. Why didn’t someone call me??? I was basically only born to do THAT scene!!!

The chemistry between Ryan and Emma is truly out of this world. I’d probably watch a live stream of them buttering bread because no doubt it would be electrifying. They are simply the cutest. And they’re little singing voices – to die for!! As a musical protege, I had very high hopes for this movie. All it took was Ryan singing City of Stars to me & I was hooked. Garrett had to cover my mouth so I would stop humming along in the theatre.

I also had to sit in my seat for an extra 5 minutes to get my sobs under control & I might have started a clap at the end.

    That’s supper sorted! Thank you. I haven’t seen the movie – clearly I must. I will applaud at the end on your behalf. I have no shame – I binned it years ago … just too wearying.
