"How dare you squander your talent?" If Whiplash was a little too brutal for your tastes, but you still have an interest in a film set in the world of music, then it looks like the Toronto International Film Festival selection Boychoir may be for you. The film follows an adolescent boy (Garrett Wareing) fresh in a new boarding school who wastes his natural talent for singing when he could be a pivotal part of a world-class choir of boys. But luckily, Dustin Hoffman is there as his choir leader to help inspire him, even if it means getting a little tough and stern. Eddie Izzard and Kathy Bates come along for good measure too. Watch!

Here's the Canadian trailer for Francois Girard's Boychoir from Mongrel Trailers:

Boychoir is directed by Francois Girard (Silk, The Red Violin) and written by Ben Ripley (Source Code). A recently orphaned 12-year-old boy (Garrett Wareing) is sent to a boarding school, where he struggles to join an elite group of world-class singers. No one expects this rebellious loner to excel, least of all the school’s relentlessly tough conductor (Dustin Hoffman), who is forced into a battle of wills to bring out the boy’s extraordinary musical gift. The film opens in Canada on March 6th but has no US release date just yet.
