Psych Cinema: La La Land


La La Land was my favorite film of 2016.  In this Psych Cinema episode, my psychological breakdown of the film includes:

  • Looking at Dr. John Gottman’s 7 Principles for a Healthy Relationship and exploring the stages and challenges that Mia and Sebastian experience in the film.
  • The challenges young couples face with balancing relationships and careers
  • Exploring the complexity of bittersweet emotions, including regret and nostalgia

I hope you enjoy Psych Cinema and be sure to subscribe to our YouTube channel.
