An Exception to the Rule

23 04 2015

Generally speaking, I like going to the movies by myself.  But recently I have been making an exception with a good pianist friend and we have seen several music films together and the last one we saw together was this.  We went on the opening day last week.

Whiplash

Over dinner at Lauderdale in Roppongi Hills where the theater was, we got to discussing it.

We concluded that the story must have been based on the Manhattan School of Music where my friend studied jazz piano.  This was due to the fact that she said there was a similarly fearsome instructor at the school who got fired for sexual harassment and the more she thought about it, there were many similarities in the film setting.

Anyway, I just checked if that was really the case but apparently not.  This was it.
