Tompkins County Public Library will host a free screening of the Academy Award-winning film “Whiplash,” Saturday, August 8 at 2 p.m. in the BorgWarner Community Room.
“Whiplash” follows drummer Andrew Neyman’s ambitious attempt to become part of an elite jazz ensemble under the tutelage of one of the most vicious teachers known to film. Miles Teller does his own drumming in this study of obsession and inspiration, and J. K. Simmons is terrifying in his Oscar-winning role.
The Library screening is free and open to the public. The film is intended for an adult audience.
