Part of the huge success of La La Land is surely the timing of its release.  When the
world seems set on going to Hell in a handcart this film offers pure entertainment plus escapism on a luscious scale.  Lovers, music, dance, spectacle - all the traits of a nostalgic musical are there in bucket loads.  No violence, no sex, no angst.  It doesn’t demand anything from its audience other than to sit back and wallow!
