Tahoe Film Fest Announces Opening Night Film

NORTH LAKE TAHOE — Tahoe Film Fest is pleased to announce their Opening Night Film for the 5th annual film festival event. Marriage Story, starring Adam Driver, Scarlett Johansson and directed by Academy Award nominee Noah Baumbach. This highly anticipated film will open the festival on Thursday evening, December 5th, at the Incline Village Cinemas.

Writer-director Noah Baumbach offers another alternately funny and deeply moving snapshot of a marriage in its final stages. With divorce proceedings in full swing as the film opens, New York City theatre director Charlie (Adam Driver) and LA-bound actress Nicole (Scarlett Johansson) have promised to keep their separation an amicable one, not just for each other but for their young son as well, but hurtful admissions and vicious verbal spats quickly sour those ambitions. As Driver and Johansson deliver rich, layered performances at Marriage Story’s heart, Baumbach surrounds his stars with one of the year’s strongest ensembles—Laura Dern, Alan Alda, Ray Liotta, Merritt Wever, and Julie Hagerty—as he jumps back and forth through Nicole and Charlie’s relationship to capture a kaleidoscopic, bittersweet tale of lost and found love.

The full program for this year’s 5th Tahoe Film Fest will be found on the festival website on or about November 1, 2019. Tickets will be available on-line or at the theater box-office.
