I absolutely adore this movie.
I love everything about it.
Even the heartbreaking ending that made me tear up in the cinema.
I love La La Land for bringing back the charming classic hollywood with a musical twist.
I love how the characters break out in songs and dances every once in a while.
I even love the way the film was directed. To portray how Hollywood was magical and how the characters were wrapped up in their own dreams, it felt both electric and surreal.
I also love how the two main characters stated that they wouldn't fall in love with each other and yet, cliche as it is, they fell in love with each other.
But what I wanted to talk about is Mia and Seb's relationship.
How it's was beautifully done
How when they fell in love, they were both happy and delirious in their own world.
And then, life came along.
He felt obliged to get a "steady" job.
But she just wanted to be happy and to achieve his dream.
Because of that, they fought.
But that was kinda like the beginning of the end.
Because of that, things happened. And although they supported each other's dream at first.
In the end, their relationship suffered because each of them went their own way to achieve their own dreams.
I like how their relationship wasn't portrayed as unhealthy and toxic.
There was no cliche crazy woman jealousy or male dislike to their woman disobeying them or achieving their own dreams.
In fact, it was done so well that it was scary.
Because when they fought, the words were sharp.
And although it was not fair for the guy to say something so mean.
It's obvious that he didn't want to hurt her. Or make her mad. But it was too late. He already said mean things.
But the crazy thing is, he got that job because he wanted to make her happy by proving that he could have something steady.
But she knew that this won't make him happy. So she's asking if he's happy.
And because of that, they actually fought.
So in the end, they drifted apart and they achieved their own dreams.
But it was heartbreaking because of them wished that they were still together.
The heartbreaking scene was beautiful.
Maybe it's because I know what it is like to lose someone.
And although years have passed and your life is fine with them.
You would always think about them time from time.
And they are the one person you wish you didn't lose.
But you did.
and you just got to deal with that.
