“There’s an incredible romanticism in L.A. that you don’t always see when you’re stuck in traffic on the 405,” Chazelle told EW about his movie, which follows a young couple — actress Mia and jazz pianist Sebastian — who try to keep their relationship together in a city of cutthroat careerism. The movie will also feature a supporting role for J.K. Simmons, who took home an Oscar for his turn in “Whiplash.”

Get ready to sing and dance when the film opens on July 15, 2016.
