Damien Chazelle's heart-pounding, electrifying Oscar winner is a gut-punch of pure adrenaline features 2 of the finest performances of the decade.

With just his second feature film, director Damien Chazelle unleashed this explosive psychological thriller about a talented young drummer attending a prestigious music academy, and the uncompromising - and sadistic - mentor who will stop at nothing to see him realize his full potential.

Featuring a brilliant performance by Miles Teller, as the gifted young jazz drummer pushed to his absolute limit...and matched beat for beat by JK Simmons, in a ferocious display of acting that rightfully won him the 2015 Oscar for Best Supporting Actor.
