Mark Webber is best known for his work in Broken Flowers, Scott Pilgrim vs. The World, Dear Wendy, and the recent rom-com Save The Date. Even though he has more work on his resume as an actor, he has been establishing himself recently as a writer/director. His directorial debut Explicit Ills was released in 2009 and his sophomore effort, The End of Love, is making its way on iTunes and in selected theaters this year. The film premiered last year at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival, which has been said to be very personal and profound. The reason the film may be a bit personal is because Mark Webber stars alongside his real-life son and showcases a portrait of parenthood. Check out the poster and trailer below:
When the mother of his two-year-old son suddenly passes away, struggling actor Mark is forced to confront his shortcomings. With his fate and his son’s now intertwined, he grapples with his ability to grow up – stuck between the life he once knew and the one waiting for him. When he has a meaningful encounter with a young mother, Mark is no longer able to live in the comfort of denial. Set against the backdrop of Los Angeles, this is an intimate and honest slice-of-life portrait of a father and son in transition.
The End of Love also co-stars Amanda Seyfried, Michael Cera, Jason Ritter, Jocelin Donahue, Aubrey Plaza, and Shannyn Sossaman. The film will be available on iTunes on January 21st and will arrive in selected theaters on March 1st.
