Four stars: 'La La Land' is worth the trip

“La La Land” takes a fresh approach to the classic Hollywood musical, to heartfelt and exhilarating effect. Working from his own screenplay, director Damien Chazelle (“Whiplash”) understands that musicals exist in a state of heightened reality, in which bursting into song is just another mode of expression. And in Stone and Gosling, he has actors who can dive into that emotional flow and carry us along with them.

Gosling is terrific as the coolly introspective yet disarmingly charming Sebastian. And Stone is deservedly generating Oscar buzz for her portrayal of an artist who can’t quite believe she’ll ever be anything other than a barista.

At a time when musicals seldom grace the big screen, “La La Land” is practically a miracle.

In 1986, Saroo was a five-year-old child in India of a poor but happy rural family. On a trip with his brother, Saroo soon finds himself alone and trapped in a moving decommissioned passenger train that takes him to Calcutta, 1500 miles away from home. Now totally lost in an alien urban...Read more

'Lion' explores the meaning of family

Based on a true story, “Lion” poignantly addresses the meaning of family and the arbitrariness of fate. Working from a screenplay by Luke Davies, director Garth Davis gets to the heart of the drama without slipping into sentimentality. Particularly impressive is his skill at switching between time frames to reflect the impact of the past on Saroo’s present.

Patel, who starred in “Slumdog Millionaire,” is perfect as a man struggling to reconcile his good fortune with the painful loss that made it possible. Kidman brings a quiet grace to Saroo’s adoptive mother. And Mara (“The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo”) taps into depths of feeling as his frustrated but faithful lover.
