Whiplash is a beautiful drama film which follows Andrew Neiman, a first-year jazz student,and his abusive mentor,Terence Fletcher.

The film completely subverts the student-teacher cliche, as Fletcher drives Neiman beyond his limits in order to take his drumming skills to the next level and realise his potential.

Powerful performances, brilliant writing and an intense screenplay led to the film being nominated for Best Adapted Screenplay and Best Picture, while J.K. Simmons won the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor for his portrayal of Terence Fletcher.
