Damien Chazelle quotes
It was taking the magic that we love from old Hollywood musicals but making it feel very gritty and real and contemporary. In this movie, I wanted to do the same thing but from a different angle, in a more lush, romantic and bigger way.
I think they combine sort of old Hollywood glamour with a modern sensibility and they just speak the same language as actors so I was so gifted to work with them individually and as a pair.
Every character has to negotiate the balance between dreams and reality. These two will always be the perfect lovers to me.
I wanted to do a musical, but really ground it in real life and invest it with stuff that felt messier and real.
