Whiplash (2014) 107 mins minutesDirector: Damien Chazelle, USA
This film shows the tense relationship between a talented and ambitious jazz drummer and his bullying and abusive teacher and bandleader at a music academy. This is a powerful film with impressive acting by the two male leads. Some good jazz that is really played by the actors too.

Silkscreen Film Society is a non-profit organisation run by volunteers on behalf of its members. Set up in 2001 by a small group of enthusiasts, the Society now has well over 400 members and has established itself as the focal point for people in the area who want to see a wide range of the best films from around the world.
Chosen by a small team of members, films are selected because they have exceptional qualities of direction, acting or cinematography. Our programme runs from September to March and we have two showings, usually at 5.30 and 8.00 pm, on designated evenings.
Films are projected on state of the art digital equipment in a 250-seat auditorium in Macclesfield’s historic Old Sunday School, close to excellent parking areas and restaurants.
