La La Land ★★★★★

I'm not entirely sure why I'd have started bawling if I hadn't stopped myself (full theater and all) just before Emma Stone started singing her 'final' audition. Maybe because it was clear this was going to be her big break and she deserved it. Maybe because I'd seen her bedroom at her parents' house with all her naive and beautiful teenage dreams just before. Maybe because the theme of following a dream and all the disappointment that comes with it resonates so much with me. Maybe just because I love everything about this movie. (OK, except for the song in the observatory. That was a bit boring.)
