SLIFF’s opening night features one of the year’s most critically lauded films, “Marriage Story,” a dramedy from Oscar-nominated writer-director Noah Baumbach (“The Squid and the Whale,” “Frances Ha”) that offers an incisive and compassionate look at a marriage breaking up and a family staying together. The film features Scarlett Johansson and Adam Driver (who also stars in “The Report” at this year’s SLIFF) as the central couple, and the deep cast includes Laura Dern, Alan Alda, and Ray Liotta. The film screens at 8 PM, but the festivities kick off with a 6:30 PM reception featuring complimentary wine and Urban Chestnut beers.
