    This is the kind of movie that just makes you feel happy to be alive. It will tug on your nostalgia strings and leave you yearning for youth. Damien Chazelle perfectly orchestrates this beautiful film in the best way possible. You fall in love with the characters and find yourself rooting for love. The cinematography, editing, score and performances all come together perfectly in this love letter to classic cinema. Long story short, go see it!!
