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 ... ...
It's pretty strange that we keep running into each other.
Sebastian: Maybe it means something.
Mia: I doubt it.
Sebastian: Yeah, I didn't think so.
The opening scenes include Christmas decorations in the coffee shop, Mia's apartment, and the jazz club, and "Jingle Bells" on the soundtrack, but Mia's phone shows the date as January 25.
There is a title card at the very beginning that says "Filmed in CinemaScope."
