The most hard-hitting drama of the year

At first glance, the world of jazz drumming might not seem like the ideal setting for a high-intensity drama about ambition and sacrifice. But with WHIPLASH, director Damien Chazelle puts all such prejudice to shame. In fact, the tale of young Andrew’s tireless quest to become a world class drummer under the tutelage of the infamous band leader Terence Fletcher, is one of the year’s most exciting movies. Combined with highly memorable performances in the lead roles, Miles Teller’s disciplined whirlwind drumming makes for an unforgettable cinematic experience.
