Hello once again to all of our friends in TORONTO, VANCOUVER, HALIFAX, OTTAWA, WINNIPEG, CALGARY, and EDMONTON! We have some special prizes in our latest contest just for you guys! Dork Shelf and Mongrel Media want to send select winners in each city a pair of run of engagement passes to see WHIPLASH. Select grand prize winners in each city will also receive a copy of the film’s awesome jazz soundtrack on CD!
Whiplash is now playing in Toronto and Vancouver, and it opens in Halifax, Ottawa, Winnipeg, Calgary, and Edmonton on Friday, November 14th.
Andrew Neiman (Miles Teller) is an ambitious young jazz drummer, single-minded in his pursuit to rise to the top of his elite east coast music conservatory. Plagued by the failed writing career of his father, Andrew hungers day and night to become one of the greats. Terence Fletcher (J.K. Simmons), an instructor equally known for his teaching talents as for his terrifying methods, leads the top jazz ensemble in the school. Fletcher discovers Andrew and transfers the aspiring drummer into his band, forever changing the young man’s life. Andrew’s passion to achieve perfection quickly spirals into obsession, as his ruthless teacher continues to push him to the brink of both his ability — and his sanity.
