A standout hit at the 2014 Sundance and Toronto film festivals, this unique and well-crafted film is about a first-year music student, portrayed by rising star Miles Teller, who wins a seat behind the drums in his school’s prestigious jazz band. He comes up against a relentless teacher who uses fear and intimidation to push his students to perfection. J.K. Simmons has been nominated for numerous awards for his searing performance as the demanding bandleader.
