We've been hearing tell of Whiplash for quite some time now. Ever since its debut at Sundance early in 2014 its been earning rave reviews from all and sundry with its tale of obsession and... drums.
It stars Miles Teller as an ambitious young jazz drummer who wants to be the best of the best. His hunger draws him to instructor J.K. Simmons who has a reputation for terrifying teaching tactics. Will they be able to work together before the pressure becomes too much for the young man.
