Wild and multiple Oscar winner Whiplash is set to hit local big screens this week
The Malaysia release of Whiplash was actually scheduled to be released last month but was postponed at the very last minute due to technical issues. TGV Pictures have now confirmed the official local release date to be 12 March 2015. Listed in my personal Top 10 Movies of 2014 list, the film has also won 3 Oscars in the recent 87th Academy Awards including the Best Actor in a Supporting Role for the menacingly strong performance by J.K. Simmons as the mean jazz music teacher/conductor Terence Fletcher who abuses his students to get the best out of them. Click here to read my quick review.
Also releasing this week is the biographical drama Wild which received Oscar nominations for both Best Actress categories but the film will only be available at GSC cinemas with International Screens. Reese Witherspoon plays Cheryl Strayed who decides to hike more than 1,100 miles to heal herself and soul-search after her divorce, mother's death and years of drugs and sex addiction. This film was listed in the Honourable Mentions list as well.
