“Andrew Neyman (Miles Teller) is a 19-year-old jazz drummer, dreaming of greatness but unsure if his dream will ever come true. Haunted by the failed writing career of his father (Paul Reiser), Andrew is determined to rise to the top of the country’s most elite music conservatory. One night, Terence Fletcher (J.K. Simmons), a conductor equally known for his talent for teaching as he is for the terrifying method of his instruction, discovers Andrew practicing the drums. Even though Fletcher says very little to him that night, he ignites in Andrew a passion to achieve his goal. To Andrew’s surprise, the next day, Fletcher requests that he be transferred into his band. This single act changes the young man’s life forever…”
The combination of jazz and torture make for a fascinating movie!
