Oriental TheatreFeb 20LA LA LANDWritten and directed by Academy Award nominee Damien Chazelle (Whiplash), La La Land tells the story of Mia (Emma Stone), an aspiring actress who serves lattes to movie stars in a studio lot café between rushing out to unsuccessful auditions, and Sebastian (Ryan Gosling), a dedicated jazz musician, reduced to tinkling out tunes in a cocktail lounge to earn a living. .
Oriental TheatreFeb 20LIONIn the heart-wrenching drama Lion, five-year-old Saroo (wonderfully played by Sunny Pawar) gets lost on a train that takes him thousands of miles away from his home and family, ending up bewildered and afraid in chaotic Kolkata (Calcutta). Somehow he survives living on the streets, before finding shelter in an orphanage that is itself not exactly a safe haven.
