other moments they become our refuge in the pitch-black darkness of a theatre Cinema sometimes ceases to be just about entertainment It travels far and beyond and can have a rippling effect in our often insular lives La La Land was able to achieve all of that if not more It uplifted our moods and transported us into a magical world The movie brought alive quite vividly the dying concepts of old-world romance and delusions of a dream making it big in a big city on screen Critics have cited La La Land as an ode to old classic Hollywood romantic movies Still La La Land goes beyond symbolism

achievement comes from its ability to have different meanings for different individuals Its immediate malleability makes it a league apart from other competing movies in the same category What also
