Aspiring actress serves lattes to movie stars in between auditions and jazz musician Sebastian scrapes by playing cocktail-party gigs in dingy bars. But as success mounts, they are faced with decisions that fray the fragile fabric of their love affair, and the dreams they worked so hard to maintain in each other threaten to rip them apart.

Damien Chazelle and Justin Hurwitz came up with the idea of the film during their senior year at Harvard University in 2010 with Hurwitz writing the musical tracks and Chazelle on dialogue. Initially they found two financial backers and a producer for a budget of $1 million. However, the demand for a lot of script changes made them to drop the project off. After Whiplash (2014) found critical success, the project was resurrected with the studio increasing the budget to $30 million; this allowed the filmmakers to rent the Griffith Observatory for filming (a full day rental there costs $10 thousand).

I have never seen such a horrible film since 2012. It had terrible acting, terrible music, and an incredibly mind-numbing plot. Emma Stone is without a doubt the most annoying actress I have ever encountered. She is so horrible that I will make sure she is not an actress in any film I watch again. I wouldn't even see her films on a bet. I would go if paid to do so, but only with earplugs and an eye-mask.
The plot is a typical boy-meets-girl-over-and-over-again til they become a 'thing'. Which is fine, if it's pulled off well. This wasn't, for the reasons I named above.
I can't believe this movie got good reviews at all. I had to walk out after 30-40 minutes. I waited until my very tiny (thankfully!) bag of popcorn and beer were finished (which I downed as quickly as possible so I could get the heck out of there), and then I got out of there like a bat out of h-e-double-toothpicks.
You might want to watch it if you don't consider Emma Stone the worst and most annoying actress ever, and/or watch Ryan Gosling desperately try to keep up with her poor acting (he had some trouble, but he managed to be a bad actor as well).
Anyway, good riddance to bad rubbish. I'm glad I got outta there and that I didn't go with a person who wanted to stay.
Find a film that isn't annoying, and go for it. Well, that's my recommendation anyway.
