Sound and Vision

A young jazz drummer is pushed to his limits by the ruthless band conductor at his school. The film won the Audience and Grand Jury awards at the Sundance Film Festival and at Deauville Film Festival. It features the American Indie's rising star Miles Teller, who gives his best performance to date as the young drummer, alongside J.K. Simmons, who is as fearsome as ever as the conductor.
