The music of the Hollywood film La La Land

Write a 7-page paper on the music of the Hollywood film La La Land that has been nominated for an Academy Award for Best Original Score. Watch the movie La La Land and get to know the score (the musical composition), including any leitmotifs (a recurrent theme throughout a musical or literary composition, associated with a particular person, idea, or situation), musical topics, diegetic music (music that is heard by the movie characters), underscoring (playing of music quietly under spoken dialogue or a visual scene. It is usually done to establish a mood or theme, frequently used to recall and/or foreshadow a musical theme important to the character(s) and/or plot point, onstage or onscreen), adaptations, arrangements, etc. You will also think about how the music is placed in the film, how it relates to the narrative, and how these features place the film in a tradition that we have studied. The format of the paper should follow the sample final project uploaded.
