Grand Piano (2013)

Eugenio Mira directs Elijah Wood, Alex Winter and John Cusack in this thriller where a concert pianist must play an difficult piece perfectly otherwise a sniper will shoot him from the gods.

Not as tight or as luridly masterful as Phone Booth but a nice companion piece. Excellent to see Alex Winter back and he makes for a disconcerting presence here. A lot of the other side characters who populate this are a bit flat so it is a joy to see a long lost face distract from Elijah’s fretting on stage in between passable set pieces.
