‘The End of Love’ Trailer: A Charming Meta-Drama With Mark Webber, Amanda Seyfried and More
You may know actor Mark Webber from indie flicks like ‘Good Dick’ and ‘Broken Flowers,’ and the not-so-indie ‘Scott Pilgrim vs. The World,’ but Webber has been slowly making his way behind the camera in recent years. His sophomore effort, ‘The End of Love’ has a new trailer and it’s charmed our pants right off.
Webber wrote and directed the filme, and co-stars with his own son, 2-year-old Isaac Love, in a meta tale of an actor named Mark who’s fallen on hard times. His wife and the mother of his son has recently passed away, and he’s struggling to pay the bills and keep a roof over his son’s head. When he meets a single mother (Shannyn Sossamon), his life is afforded the opportunity to finally move forward — will Mark grow up, or will he stay in a state of arrested development, hindered by his wife’s passing?
The trailer, courtesy of The Playlist, is absolutely lovely and features a supporting cast (friends of Webber’s) who all seem to be playing heightened versions of themselves, including Jason Ritter, Michael Cera, Amanda Seyfried, Alia Shawkat, Aubrey Plaza and Jocelin Donahue. ‘The End of Love’ gathered a bit of attention at Sundance, but you can see it soon when it hits theaters in January, 2013.
