One of the worst things about working at a movie theatre is that you see a trailer for a film that gets you excited for that film, you see that trailer dozens of times for months and months… and then the film comes out and you find yourself greatly disappointed by it. The trailer, and the other parts of the marketing machine, did its job effectively. It got you excited to see the film. But alas, the best parts of the film were in the trailer. It really sucks when it happens, and it happens far too often.
Thankfully, that was not the case with “La La Land.”
