Following a screening of Ellen Love last Wednesday at Manchester's 24:7 Theatre Festival, we've stumbled across a rather splendid review, so felt compelled to share...

"Forming part of the Manchester 24:7 Theatre Festival, 'Visual Pleasures' provided an evening of clips from both Mancunian and national contributors and turned-up more than a few lovely surprises...
It was back to art school as Ben Barton’s ethereal Gothic sonnet The Return of Ellen Love hit the screen. Filmed on super 8, the film served as a great video to the accompanying score of Jennifer Harris’s 'Black Eyes', and was a welcome respite from the drama that had gone before. Described by its creators as a 'dark and romantic visual poem', this was five minutes of alternative fun that served the crowd well."
