The Chicago International Film Festival Celebrates DAY TEN for the City of the Big Shoulders movie spectacular. It is Awards Night as this competition festival names its honorees. Feature highlights include SHORTS 4 (“These Days”), the dance doc CUNNINGHAM, the comedy PATRICK and Noah Baumbach’s highly anticipated MARRIAGE STORY (rush tickets only). Click here for a complete rundown of DAY TEN screenings and events.

Love is ephemeral and relationships complex in this fragmented chronicle of a romance between two young adults in present-day Berlin. When Sophie meets Georg, she’s pregnant and recently abandoned by the child’s father. They quickly fall in love, with Georg raising her son as his own, though the ties that bind their patchwork family ultimately prove tenuous. With a sharp eye and steady hand, director Bliese delves into the mysteries of attraction and the waning of desire in “The Components of Love.” She will make an appearance on behalf of the film at today’s (10/25) screening.
