At the very beginning of the movie, when Mia is leaving work to go to the audition, she bumps into a customer who spills a cup of coffee on her white shirt. You can clearly see that when she leaves the audition, the big coffee stain on her shirt is very different from before (when she was leaving work). See more »

My Most Memorable Cinematic Experience Since Star Wars - when I was six
The last time, I felt like this, in a cinema, I was six years old and I was watching Star Wars. I never imagined, I would ever find that feeling again in a cinema. That sense of being transported to another world.
The opening sequence took my breath away and I never got it back. Not even at the end - which left my head spinning. It is a beautiful film with soul, wit, charm, style and love. It is simply outrageous! Bold and fantastic and fantastical.
I am a straight man but my love for Ryan Gosling could change all that. He's a melancholy genius and Emma Stone is our muse.
This film defies genre. It is a masterpiece. I urge you to see it. I was lucky enough to see it at the BFI London Film Festvial.
It has been five days since I saw La La Land and I am still thinking about it and singing the haunting refrain that plays with your soul. I mean it gets in there - that music - the music of the firmament. Flying still, dreaming still... thank you Damien.
