Emotional trailer for Mark Webber's The End of Love with Shannon Sossamon
You may remember Mark Webber as the lead singer from SCOTT PILGRIM VS. THE WORLD (one of my all-time faves), but he's on a much more emotional and grounded path for his directorial debut in THE END OF LOVE. The indpendent drama has the actor playing a variation of himself as a young, struggling actor who is trying to raise his son after the death of the boy's mother. Joining Webber are a number of his PILGRIM co-stars, including Michael Cera and Aubrey Plaza, as well as the lovely Shannon Sossamon, who simply isn't seen enough in movies these days.
The trailer is a somber, emotional one, with some touching moments between Webber and his son. It's kind of pitch perfect indie-fare, which I always liken as a movie that lets you linger where studio films make you cut. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't, but I'm intrigued by the potential for THE END OF LOVE.
Take a look:
Here's the synopsis:
When the mother of his two-year-old son Isaac suddenly passes away, struggling actor Mark (played by writer/director Mark Webber) is forced to grapple with his ability to grow up. As he kindles a relationship with a young single mother (Shannyn Sossamon), he begins to realize that he can no longer remain in denial about the real-life consequences his choices have on Isaac (Isaac Love, Webber’s real-life son). Set against the backdrop of Los Angeles, The End of Love is an intimate and stunningly honest portrait of a young father in transition between the life he’s been working for and the one that’s waiting for him.
THE END OF LOVE will have a limited theaterical release on March 1, 2013 and hits iTunes on January 21, 2013.
