Backyard Cinema Cuban Screen Outdoor Screening: Whiplash
Catch this intense and inspiring film in relaxing surroundings
Backyard Cinema have teamed up with Camden Market to bring you their very own outdoor summer film festival set across two screens. Sink into giant beanbags and lounge on deckchairs as you enjoy a selection of films, all served with fresh burgers, craft beer, cocktails and a decent helping of live DJs. Adventure through the alleys of Camden Market to find the intimate courtyard hosting the Cuban Screen stage. Here, you will find a more unusual range of indie flicks, moving documentaries and foreign language films. For this one get ready for Damien Chazelle's jazz-soaked drama, Whiplash. Depicting the hardships of drummer, Andrew (Miles Teller) and his highly dysfunctional relationship with a tyrannical professor, Terence Fletcher (J.K. Simmons) this film was the talk of the town in 2014 – and rightly so. Simmons deservedly won both a BAFTA and an Oscar for his performance as Fletcher, a man full of ferocity and virtuosity who is willing to push his students to any lengths to achieve his vision, no matter the cost. But be careful: this film grabs you by the scruff of your collar and refuses to let go. You have been warned. "It will spit you out elated, exhausted and cheering for an encore." – Empire "Simmons gives an indelible, Oscar-worthy performance here, yet he’s matched in every step by Teller, who shows us an intense young man who finds in music an order and sense that the world around him lacks." – The Guardian Certificate: 15.
