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 song "When I Wake" by Justin Hurwitz was first featured in the movie Whiplash (2014), with the two main characters listening to the song while out on a date. The same thing happens in La La Land as the song is featured in the background while Sebastian and Mia are talking ... ...
Sebastian: It's Christmas.
Bill: Yeah, I see the decorations. Good luck in the New Year.
Before the end of the 'Another Day of Sun' sequence, as the camera pans up over the freeway, we don't see Mia or Sebastian's cars. After the 'La La Land' and 'Winter' title cards and the camera pans back down, their cars suddenly appear, replacing the other cars that were there before. Mia's Prius replaces the white SUV with the dancer in orange on top, while Seb's car replaces the gray sedan behind the SUV with the dancer in green.
There is a title card at the very beginning that says "Filmed in CinemaScope."
