Directed by Eugenio Mira
Pianist Tom Selznick (Elijah Wood) is giving a long-overdue concert after stage fright derailed his promising career. But when he arrives onstage, he receives a message from a sniper who tells Tom he will be shot if he plays a wrong note. As Tom tries desperately to outfox the assassin he eventually realizes there’s no way out, and he’ll have to confront the piece of music that scared him off the stage. A ultra-tense thriller in the vein of RED EYE and PHONE BOOTH, GRAND PIANO plays out every musician’s worst nightmare - and makes it our own. Written by Damien Chazelle (LA LA LAND, WHIPLASH).
A pianist is menaced by a sniper who threatens to shoot him if he plays a wrong note.
Cast: Elijah Wood, John Cusack, Kerry Bishé
Started a bit slow but loved it by the time it got to the great climax, and then.... What the hell was with that final scene? Suddenly we want to pretend to be deep? Whatever, the rest of the movie rocks.
The only reason I kept watching this because it was kinda gay ??? like the hitman guy DEFINITELY wanted to top tommy okayyy.
if you can hack the far fetched plot and some wooden performances, then this might be worth 80 mins of your time
Didn't like the ending. Anyone care to explain?
Solid film. Great tension.
