Sunday afternoon another super successful Toronto International Film Festival wrapped with its customary awards presentation.  The big winner?  “La La Land”, a musical ode to Los Angeles starring Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone as two young lovers trying to make it in Hollywood. It’s written and directed by the guy who did “Whiplash”, the amazing movie from a couple years ago about a drum student and his maniacal teacher, and this TIFF win must have him over the moon:  5 other TIFF winners have gone on to take Oscar’s Best Picture.  The film, which received standing ovations at screenings in Toronto, opens the first week of December.  To to get a  taste, the trailer is here!

Does this sound like your kind of night out at the movies?
