Hailed as ‘Spectacular in style and substance,’ by Samuel Sims on Candid Magazine, modern musical La La Land, starring Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone, has been nominated for seven Golden Globes and is hot-tipped as an Oscar contender. Candid’s Chicago-based associate, Jeff Conway sat down with writer and director, Damien Chazelle and actress Rosemarie DeWitt, who plays Gosling’s sister in the film, for an exclusive interview.
Jeff is a multiple-Emmy nominated television journalist based in Chicago – a city that we profile in our upcoming fourteenth issue, out in January. One of the Windy City’s most talked about TV hosts, Jeff began his journey via an entertainment television series on NBC and swiftly worked his way up to become the sole producer and correspondent of the show. He then moved on to Comcast’s Scene Network where he is a host and producer for the celebrity and fashion content. Jeff interviewed our editor-in-chief, Courtney Blackman on the channel last summer and some of his most memorable interviews to date include Channing Tatum, Robert Downey Jr., Reese Witherspoon, Jodie Foster and Zac Efron.
La La Land will be released in UK cinemas on the 13th of January, just following the launch of Candid Magazine’s fourteenth issue launch.
