While navigating their careers in Los Angeles, a pianist and an actress fall in love while attempting to reconcile their aspirations for the future.
The plot has strong ties to Emma Stone's real-life history. The movie is based in LA, and Mia is discovered as a college dropout actress pursuing her dreams. Stone is a school dropout herself, moving to LA at the age of 15 in pursuit of an acting career.
What is that? Is that a script?
Mia: It's a play.
Alexis: A play? You better give us all roles!
Mia: Actually, it's a one-woman-show, so I can't...
Tracy: Is that gonna happen every time?
Mia: I think so.
At the beginning of the movie, Mia is wearing a woman's blouse (buttons on left) when she leaves work for an audition and bumps into a customer who spills coffee on her. During the audition she is still wearing a woman's blouse, but when she leaves you can see that she is wearing a man's shirt (buttons on right) as she unzips her jacket and enters the elevator. When she gets to her apartment and flops on the bed, she is back to wearing a woman's blouse.
There is a title card at the very beginning that says "Filmed in CinemaScope."
