    Despite the writer/director’s claim that the movie was based on his college experience, I don’t buy it. I can’t believe that a college/university teacher could get away with being that abusive to young adult students who are paying good money for what should be a supportive, enlightened education in an artistic pursuit at that, music, albeit jazz. I might be wrong; there are a lot of small colleges in the States, but this kind of so-called toughness in a sophisticated centre like New York city? It just didn’t ring true to me.
