15 (2014 Damien Chazelle) 107 mins

In a multi award-winning performance, J.K. Simmons pushes a talented young drummer at a prestigious music conservatory to the limit. Miles Teller’s performance keeps pace with that of Simmons, as the frenetic relationship between teacher and pupil culminates in his solo performance at an illustrious jazz festival. Raising questions about the rights and wrongs of such a search for perfection, the film keeps you on the edge of your seat to the end.
