Whiplash is the right title for this film.

This weekend, we screen Whiplash, the 2014 film nominated for 5 Academy Awards, including Best Picture. Co-star JK Simmons won the Best Supporting Actor Oscar for his role as the sadistic teacher.

The film is exhilarating, bracing, sometimes poignant and it explores the relationship of teacher and student, where both have serious “issues”.

If you are intrigued by this film, stop by the Crown Grill on Broadway after our 3 pm Sunday screening, to discuss the movie. It’s our second Hangout – a chance to relax, have a drink or bite to eat, and discuss this film, and others, if you like. They are fun! Hangout starts at 5 pm, in their “library” in the back. No cover charge
