Whiplash (2014)

The lonely Andrew (Miles Teller) is a young drummer who dreams of being the best of his generation and making his name in American music as did Buddy Rich, his greatest idol on drums. After catching the attention of the revered and merciless jazz master Terence Fletcher (JK Simmons), Andrew enters the main orchestra of the Shaffer Conservatory, the best music school in the United States. However, living with the abusive conductor will make Andrew transform his dream into an obsession, doing everything to reach a new level as a musician, even if it puts his girlfriend and physical and mental health at risk.
