Synopsis

Andrew is a determined young musician, and after winning a place at a prestigious New York music school he focuses on rising above his peers and mastering his craft. An invitation from renowned musical director Terence Fletcher to join the school’s elite jazz ensemble therefore seems a dream come true. However, Andrew soon discovers that the formidable tutor lives up to his reputation and he finds himself struggling with Fletcher’s exacting standards and brutal teaching methods. The pair’s obsessive pursuit of perfection forms the basis of a tense, destructive relationship that tests the limits of both men but is nonetheless exhilarating to watch.
