Actually, it is a good movie. Although I did not recognize it the time when watched it. It gives me a lingering and bitter aftertaste.
I just broke up with my BF when I watched LaLa Land. The plot of the movie is similar to us. We cannot share the same path in our life at that time so we decided to break up. I could not help myself thinking about the possibility that we can be together again and live happily together. Or if we chose the same city to work when we graduated the results may be different.
Just like the last scene of the movie, Seb think of the possibility living with Mia. However, he did not realize his dream of opening a bar to save Jazz. Therefore, he knows the cruel reality that they have to make a choice between love and dream. The world we live is similar to what the movie show us.
Come on! Whatever the choice you make, just give your best shot.
