Warren B. Malone’s ‘Across the River’ to receive its world premiere at the 2017 Manchester Film Festival

Writer and director Warren B. Malone’s honest and charming drama “Across the River” will receive its world premiere on March 4th at the Manchester Film Festival and stars talented duo Elizabeth Healey (Dr. Strange) and Keir Charles (Man Up).



Across the River is an “ex-love story” about recapturing lost love, following your dreams, responsibility and modern life.

Emma has it all as a successful lawyer: Barrister husband, lovely children, and great house in Chelsea.

Ryan is trying to build an elephant out of sand on the Southbank.

He was her first love; it ended badly many years ago and they haven’t crossed paths since.

It’s awkward at first but they then find they have one thing in common: a strike has paralyzed public transport and they need to get to their homes on opposite sides of the river. 

On their way they reminisce, argue, cry and laugh.

They can never recapture what they had, but the memory of it tempts them.

So what now?
