LA LA Land (2)

So, I posted three weeks ago that to miss the Trumpness of  today, Bern and I were going to see LA LA Land. And we did.

And it is great!

I've never seen a movie quite like it. It is a musical movie that succeeds both as a musical and as a movie.

It is a wonderful story--right out of the dreams of la-la-land and Hollywood. And, amazingly, right out of real life.

It's worth the price of admission for the John Legend music and the opening scene. But it is worth so much more. Laughter, tears, amazement, whimsy, beauty (lots of visual beauty) love and loss.

What else would you want? Oh, a little movie magic? Lots of that too.

Must see, I'd say.
