A promising young drummer enrolls at a cut-throat music conservatory where his dreams of greatness are mentored by an instructor who will stop at nothing to realize a student's potential.
Miles Teller, who has played the drums since he was 15, received blisters on his hands due to the vigorous, unconventional style of jazz drumming. Some of his blood was on the drumsticks and the drum set as a result.
Oh my dear God. Are you one of those single tear people? Do I look like a double fucking rainbow to you?
Twice in the movie there are shots of trumpets where the film was reversed so it appears that a trumpet is the reverse of how it is actually constructed. As an example, on a real trumpet, the lead pipe runs along the right side of the trumpet, and in the movie, there are two shots where the lead pipe is running along the left side. It appears that this was done so that the direction of the band - director being shown to the left with the horns blowing toward the left from the right - could be maintained.
