Writer/director Damien Chazelle combines the cinematic sensibilities of Cassavetes and Godard in a gritty, 16mm, MGM-style musical. Backed by a score by Justin Hurwitz, the film tracks a pair of young lovers after they meet by chance in a Boston park and bond over old-timey music.

Critics reviews

It’s a rare director who is as accomplished in the hands-on aspects of filmmaking as in structuring a story and in casting and working with actors. The entire non-professional cast brings emotional authenticity and enthusiasm to the screen. Palmer has the mystery and wattage that could spell stardom. Garcia’s Madeline is defined by myriad shades of ambivalence and uncertainty, but in her break out dance number… she miraculously seems to levitate while remaining in her adorably earthbound body.
