Mark Webber, who one may recognize from Scott Pilgrim vs. The World or the severely overlooked drama The Hottest State, came to Sundance with quite a slate earlier this year. Not only was he featured in two films (For a Good Time, Call… and Save the Date), but he also debuted a film he wrote, directed, produced and starred in.
Titled The End of Love, his latest drama follows the actor as a single parent with a two-year-old son. We were positive on the film back at Sundance, and said while its a “bit too meandering for its own good, it shows the promise of something more” as Webber has delivered something ”mature and honest.” Joined by a supporting cast including Amanda Seyfried, Jason Ritter, Jocelin Donahue, Michael Cera and Shannyn Sossamon, check out the 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.
The End of Love arrives in limited release on January 21st, 2013.

In theaters now, Ivan Reitman‘s new film, Draft Day, does quite a bit with a hard subject. Part of that is the writing, but a lot of the success on screen is due to the amassing of talent Reitman manages and the flash he implants into ordinary scenes. The life of a GM during a tumultuous and pressure-packed [...]
