Indie film leader Random Media proudly announces the worldwide debut of director Warren B. Malone’s delightful unromantic comedy, Across The River, a ‘slice of life’ story about one couple’s second-chance at goodbye. It’s the emotionally resonant tale of first loves reunited by accident as both, thwarted by the challenges of a public transportation strike, seek to get home on a busy London afternoon – but to opposite sides of the river. As they reminisce, laugh and cry, the reality of their current lives pulls them apart, but the memory of what they had – and could have had – tempts them.
Described by early critics as ‘moving, charming, and often funny, and even sometimes riveting in its simplicity and honesty,’ (Critical Movie Critics) and as ‘a heartwarming movie packing an emotional punch,’ (The Mancunian), Across The River has been featured extensively throughout the film festival circuit and showcased as an official selection at events including 2017 Manchester Film Festival, 2017 Int’l Filmmaker Festival of World Cinema Milan, 2017 Footcandle Film Festival, 2017 Blue Whiskey Independent Film Festival, 2017 Maryland Int’l Film Festival, and the 2017 East End Film Festival.
In Across The River, Emma has it all. She’s a successful lawyer with a loving husband, two wonderful children and a beautiful home. Ryan is trying to build an elephant out of sand on the beach. He was her first love; it ended badly many years ago and they haven’t seen each other since… It’s awkward at first but they have one thing in common. A strike has paralyzed public transport and they need to get to their homes: quite close, but 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.
