A film that’s garnered incredible buzz after its multi-award winning debut at the Sundance Film Festival, Whiplash is one of THE must-see titles of the season. A superlative character drama, it’s unconventional and hard to describe, but its detailed performances, use of music and percussive editing lead to a devastating emotional punch. Miles Teller (Divergent) stars as promising drummer Andrew, starting out at a prestigious New York conservatory and dreaming of becoming the new Buddy Rich. But he faces a stern taskmaster in Fletcher (a superb J. K. Simmons), one of the school’s principals, whose ferocious methods force a struggle between them in their shared quest for success. Mesmerising.
“It’s rare to see a film about music that professes its love for the music and its characters equally” **** Henry Barnes, The Guardian
