Join us for Movie Night on Wednesday, April 26, 2017, from 6:00-8:15pm. We will be showing an Oscar-winning movie about La La Land. The film stars Ryan Gosling, Emma Stone, and John Legend and is directed by Damien Chazelle. The movie won six Oscars including best director, best actress, best cinematography, best original song, and others.

Set in Los Angeles, an aspiring actress Mia (Stone) meets Sebastian (Gosling), an old-school jazz musician, as they struggle to make ends meet and pursue their dreams. Rotten Tomatoes writes that the movie “breathes new life into a bygone genre, with thrillingly assured direction, powerful performances, and an irresistible excess of heart.” The Detroit News writes, “[the movie] is a special, special experience, and movies like this don’t come around too often.”

Rotten Tomatoes gives the film a 93% approval rating and Rolling Stone writes, “You leave [the movie] exhilarated by…nonstop inventiveness, dazzled by Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling, and thrilled how they made movies magic again.”

This film is free and open to the public and is accessible. Movie times are approximate. Please call the Malden Public Library at 781-324-0218 for more information. Rated PG-13 (128 min.)
