The Lengths A Guy Will Go To For Love

The Fifth Annual Blue Whiskey Independent Film Festival continues tonight at Cutting Hall in Palatine, from 7:00 to 10:30 PM. Once again, a feature-length film will be preceded by three shorter works.

Tim Driscoll’s 108-minute film The Lengths combines comedy and drama in a tale of a heartbroken guy determined to keep his ex-girlfriend from marrying someone else. His quest involves a cross-country journey with a not-so-trustworthy buddy, and later, a hitchhiker with her own priorities enters the picture. 

A trio of short films will be screened before The Lengths. Pint is director Nic Barker’s nine-minute comedy from Australia concerning a guy who drinks too much at a wedding where he wasn’t particularly welcome to begin with. Craig Elrod’s Molly is a 12-minute comedy made in America about the complications that arise when a man enlists his best friend to help him cope with a shattered romance. The 13-minute comedy V Is For Visa comes from UK director John McPhail, and tells the story of a musician who marries the deranged woman who has been stalking his band, just so he can remain in the country.

The Blue Whiskey Independent Film Festival continues at Cutting Hall in Palatine through Saturday, July 26th, and on Sunday, July 28th, it returns to the Star Cinema Grill in Arlington Heights for the Awards Dinner and Blue Whiskey Chaser.
