Sony Pictures Classics debuted the trailer for Whiplash, an American drama film written and directed by Damien Chazelle.
It stars Miles Teller, Melissa Benoist, Austin Stowell, Jayson Blair, and Kavita Patil.
“Andrew, a promising 19-year-old drummer at a cutthroat Manhattan music conservatory, has little interest in being just a musician. Haunted by his father’s failed writing career and plagued with the fear that mediocrity just might be genetic, Andrew dreams of greatness.
Determined not to follow in his father’s footsteps, he practices daily until his hands literally bleed. The pressure of success ratchets into high gear when he is picked to join the school band led by the infamous Terence Fletcher, a brutally savage music instructor who will stop at nothing to realize a student’s potential.
Under Fletcher’s ruthless direction, Andrew begins to pursue perfection at any cost—even his humanity.”
Whiplash is set to hit limited theaters in US on October 10, 2014.
