A beautiful piece of cinema, that hits all the right charming notes. with some dazzling visuals and pitch perfect cast.
Invoking memories of The Artist a few years back, this harkening back to yesteryear with its old school tempo, it works as a modern classic. Once again uniting Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone, its really starting to allow Goslings oft mooted charm and charisma to seep through as up until last years The Nice Guys, he really was somewhat of a Charisma vacuum.
Emma Stone on the other hand has never been better. Kooky, energetic and beautifully crafted work from her. Her talent just oozes through the screen. John Legend was an offbeat addition to the cast, but that's the point of his character.
Overall a wonderful piece of cinema that should be enjoyed by a mass audience. It's not often that Hollywood produces something this wistful, gleeful and charming. Enjoy.
