Award-winning high school drama
It’s Oscars ahoy in Damien Chazelle’s debut movie. Whiplash cleaned up at the recent Academy Awards, including best supporting actor for JK Simmons. The high school drama sees a jazz student face up to his abusive instructor. Before you dip into the popcorn, squeeze in a spot of dinner at Roxy Bar & Screen. London's coolest cinema does a mean dinner. Over 18s only. Arrive from 6pm for dinner. Dress code: smart casual.
"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."
