Each year, it seems more and better events crop up at which you can celebrate Martin Luther King, Jr. Day around town. With a long weekend on the docket, it's nice to have something to do that represents the spirit of the holiday.
Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling dance and sing their way across our city with grace and wit in La La Land, which is easily one of the finest films of the year. Directed by Damien Chazelle (Whiplash), the film first comes across as a triffle, but has a third act with surprising impact. Devoid of cynicism, the unassuming film is an homage to musicals of old and an ode to dreamers - as such, it will steal your heart and should absolutely top your Holiday To Do List
The story behind the novel's conception has a nice Southern California slant and the Tim Burton-directed film comes out this weekend.
