In the first teaser of this film, the singing was left to the other beautiful star of this movie aka Ryan Gosling and he blew me away with the tidbit of the song “City of Stars”, but now we get to hear Emma Stone show off her beautiful singing voice as well. I can’t say enough about the potential of this movie. The talent surrounding is enough, but the cinematography and name of Damien Chazelle (Whiplash) should allow the excitement to move freely.
The look of this film is astounding without even seeing more than the same few frames from the first teaser and it features a clip of a new song from the film that will have you drooling for more. The on screen chemistry between Gosling and Stone seems to work each time they’re in a movie together and their talents on their own as well, but this may be the best showcasing for their work as performers.
I think Chazelle is going to become the next great indie director if he can nail this one like he did with his debut film Whiplash and when I have to replay the damn trailers 12 times in a row to ease my obsession for the film’s songs, you’re doing something right.
