The Nomad Cinema Outdoor Screening: Whiplash
I was there to push people beyond what’s expected of them
How many ways are there to see a movie? Well, when you add movie magicians The Nomad Cinema into the conversation, the possibilities are endless. Nomad Cinema have no fixed home: they journey from venue to venue, always finding fresh pastures to screen cult classics and old favourites. For this one, get ready for Damien Chazelle's jazz-soaked drama, Whiplash. In 2014, Whiplash was the talk of the town – and rightly so. Depicting the hardships of drummer, Andrew (Miles Teller) and his highly dysfunctional relationship with a tyrannical professor, Terence Fletcher (J.K. Simmons). J.K. 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. Be careful: this film grabs you by the scruff of your collar and refuses to let go. "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 "It will spit you out elated, exhausted and cheering for an encore." – Empire Certificate: 15. Runtime: 1 hour 44 minutes. Please note: this screening is silent with Wi-Fi headsets.
"Dynamic, provocative and moving."
