There was more of that in this film as well as the message behind the lyrics regarding being different and just loving yourself despite those who want to hold you back and tear you down. I highly recommend this movie and with how much fun it was, this has lots of rewatchable quality. If anything, just to experience the songs and routines again. Together they are powerful.
Picture via vogue. If you like musicals, this one will not disappoint. It may seem a little disjointed by some hardcore Broadway and musical fans but at the end of the day you will end up applauding to at least one song by the end of the movie.

This is a great movie to watch around the holidays. Did you enjoy the movie as much as I did? Did you enjoy the songs more than the story or vice versa? Comment your thoughts and thank you for reading my review. I love this movie!! I like all the songs. Some stand out more than others, but I still like them all. I literally know some of the lyrics already. I personally enjoyed the story and the songs. Like Liked by 1 person. Haha nice. I agree with you about La La Land.

Coming to Singapore to join him is his family, including his four-year-old daughter who has spent Christmas in a different city for each of the last three years. His family is used to his Christmas Day routine - spend some quality time together in the morning, before daddy has to go to work.
