The debut of director Damien Chazelle, Whiplash is the story of a teenage jazz drummer and his brilliant/bullish/bonkers teacher.

Miles Teller plays musical prodigy Andrew Neyman to J.K. Simmons’ ruthless Mr Fletcher – an orchestra leader who seems to take teaching inspiration from Full Metal Jacket.

Set for release in the States in October, expect Whiplash to make a sizeable bang over here before the end of the year.
