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
good film. shit ending
Unbelievably stupid, in the stupid-writer’s-idea-of-clever style of stupidity. This guy writes about music like it’s athletics, and in this film he takes a good concept and utterly destroys all the potential suspense by bad handling. It sounds like a clever set-up for a film, but trust me, don’t insult your intelligence with this nonsense.
Really enjoyed this thriller, Elijah Wood always delivers and I was on the edge of the sofa the whole time. Written by the Whiplash guy too, this was some classy tension.
Pretty good movie
