It's like all of your power has been taken away, and I'm very much about how can we hold on to our power in order to deal with hospitals, doctors, people who have qualifications - it's intimidating. I'm alive until the point I am not.

Get Me Out Of Here! Even Barnum falls prey to this way of thinking at one of his lowest points, forbidding the circus performers from joining him at his recently earned cocktail hour with the social elites. In response, the circus performers stand up for their humanity and their right to exist just as much as the people who make up their audiences.
You are beautiful. He delights in what makes each person unique, but he also acknowledges that the world shuns them. This is most apparent when he first calls at the home of the midget. After similar encouragement, the whole circus crew grows into a family strengthened by love and freedom from judgment, exhibiting a microcosm of what can happen in a society in which everyone puts the most unique part of themselves proudly on display.
Movies tell us what we want them to tell us. I strongly believe that the stories we tell both reflect and build our society. It is no surprise to me that this film, which has been in development since , finally found its place in This year, far more than in the last eight, American citizens and artists have felt called to tell stories about people who questioned lines drawn between colors and classes, people who were celebrated for being different, people who found ways to feel special and to be true to themselves.
The fact that this movie finally arrived this year shows how desperately our society is in need of these ideals and how hungry we are to see them fulfilled. This was the moment that broke me. Just kidding, nobody is surprised at all. But check it out anyway. The first time I saw La La Land I was new to New York, pretty uncomfortable with my job, and trying to recover from the ends of some life-defining relationships. Things in real life were a bit tough and I was excited to see a good old-fashioned Hollywood happy ending. But not only do they not end up together- no, that would have been too easy.
Instead we have to watch through their eyes every moment that might have gone differently and maybe could have saved it. It tore my heart out, because I can do that too. We all can tick off every single twitch that we believe caused somebody to leave when we think we might have had the power to get them to stay. Now I wanted the movie to end in the midst of this fantasy; I had no qualms suspending reality to ease the pain of loss. La La Land dances back and forth between surreal romance and moments that are so real that they hurt.

La La Land refuses to give me that peace. La La Land gave us romance and music and dance and art and what can only be described as the experience of falling in love through city and sound. Not only does the love end, but we see very clearly that those who were once in it have a desire to somehow travel back and change the past in order to get their fairy tale ending.
What are you supposed to be hurt about then? I operated better in dreams than in reality and I would do anything for a person I cared about- especially pushing them toward their purpose. This person was honest, supportive, kind- all the right things. Having identified much more with Ryan to begin with, I started to feel a sense of vindication. Instead, I saw it as a necessity for these two people to each follow their own path.
The third time I saw La La Land, the somebody from before had become enormously important in my life. He had helped me to heal from past relationships and past losses. Love means that I will always forgive you. The movie had been giving us clues the entire time: their relationship is best at night and in surreal places, and the first time they were together in daylight is when they break up. My final lesson: Maybe the best thing our first love can do for us is push us to our dreams and then kiss us goodbye.
