Canadian actor Ryan Gosling finally joins the ‘La La Land’ celebrations as it premieres at the Toronto International Film Festival after wowing audiences at Venice. Rough Cut – no reporter narration
‘La La Land’ lands in Toronto
NATURAL ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION)
After triumphantly opening the Venice film festival to glowing reviews as well as snagging the Best Actress prize for Emma Stone, ‘La La Land’ landed at the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) on Monday. The musical movie, directed by ‘Whiplash’ director Damien Chazelle and starring Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone, tells the story of a struggling jazz pianist, Sebastian, who falls in love with Mia, an aspiring actress in modern day Los Angeles. Sebastian is trying to get people, young and old, to care about traditional jazz, while Mia hopes one of her many auditions will finally land her an acting gig. Gosling wasn’t on hand to support the film at Venice so it was his first time facing the press in Toronto in his home country of Canada. ‘La La Land’, which is now a strong contender for the Academy Awards next year, is scheduled to hit cinemas in North America in December.
