Cast: Jason Palmer, Desiree Garcia, Sandha Khin Before La La Land, Chazelle and composer Justin Hurwitz laid the groundwork for their Oscar wins with an irresistibly ambitious debut: a microbudget musical shot handheld on gloriously grainy black-and-white 16mm film. A jazz trumpeter and a grad student separate after a few months together, but the memory of each other lingers, expressed through tap-dancing musical numbers and jazz solos.
