NATURAL ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION)
STORY: Director Damien Chazelle looks to be onto another winner as his latest film ‘La La Land’ takes the top prize at the Toronto Film Festival. The musical tale of star-crossed lovers chasing their dreams in Hollywood stars Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling. It’s 31-year-old writer-director Chazelle’s second major feature film, his 2014 film “Whiplash,” an intense study of a jazz drummer’s quest to perfection, went on to win three Oscars. Now in its 41st year, the Toronto festival ranks with Cannes and Sundance as one of the world’s top movie gatherings. The sprawling festival, with more than 400 films screened, often serves as a launch pad for films and performances for the awards season that culminates with the Oscars.
