Whiplash 15

"★★★★★ – it will spit you out elated, exhausted and cheering for an encore" – Empire

On its release in early 2015 Whiplash felt like a major moment at Phoenix; there was such a buzz about in the building as staff and customers couldn’t stop talking about it.

Under the direction of a ruthless instructor (JK Simmons, whose fearsome performance bagged him a host of awards) a talented young drummer (Miles Teller) begins to pursue perfection at any cost, even his humanity.

One-time aspiring-drummer Damien Chazelle's feature (adapted from his 2013 short) was a big winner in the 2015 awards season, scooping three Academy Awards, three BAFTAs, and a Golden Globe.

Dir: Damien Chazelle

Cast: Miles Teller, J. K. Simmons
