January 28th: Whiplash
USA 2014 | English | 106 minutes
Brilliantly realized by writer-director Damien Chazelle and driven by fierce, searing performances from Miles Teller (The Spectacular Now, Rabbit Hole) and J.K. Simmons (Labor Day, A Beginner’s Guide to Endings), Whiplash is a potent drama about just how far someone will go to be the best. Andrew (Teller) is a promising nineteen year-old drummer at the Schaffer Music Academy, one of the best music schools in the country. The pressure to succeed becomes all the more intense when he is picked to join the school band led by the infamous Terence Fletcher (Simmons), a ruthlessly disciplinarian music instructor who will stop at nothing to make his students realize their potential.
