Whiplash

Released 2014 Rating 15 in UK
Director Damien Chazelle Writer/s Damien Chazelle
Starring Miles Teller, J.K.Simmons
Source of story An original screenplay followed by a short film
Elevator Pitch A talented drumming student is recruited for an elite jazz band which has an obsessive and bullying professor, who is apparently keen to find really exceptional musicians, and to push them to breaking point.
Content There is a lot of music, and whether you like jazz or not you will be impressed, and you will feel constant sympathy for the musicians, and the drummer as he reaches the limit of his capabilities.
A View We went to see this by accident, and really enjoyed it. It was nominated in a number of categories at the 2015 Oscars, and J.K.Simmons won Best Supporting Actor. It was an extremely low budget film and made money.
