The basis for La La Land — this vibrant 1960s French musical broke the norms of Broadway and opted for poignancy rather than flashy show-stopping numbers to tell the story of two star-crossed lovers in a small coastal town in France. The film was brilliantly restored by Agnes Varda in the 1990s to its signature breathtakingly colorful palette.
