Mark Webber is likable -- our kind of guy. His acting career is full of interesting, offbeat independent productions and challenging little roles ("Broken Flowers," "The Hottest State," "Dear Wendy" and of course, a bit more mainstream, "Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World"). But the 32-year-old actor is also trying to tell his own stories and in recent years has evolved into a director/screenwriter as well, starting off with 2009's "Explicit Ills." His sophomore directorial effort looks like another small and intimate, personal work called "The End Of Love." It also boasts a meta aspect and stars himself as an actor named Mark and his real-life two-year-old son Issac. Here's the synopsis:

The End Of Love, Mark Webber

Mark Webber is likable -- our kind of guy. His acting career is full of interesting, offbeat independent productions and challenging little roles ("Broken Flowers," "The Hottest State," "Dear Wendy" and of course, a bit more mainstream, "Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World"). But the 32-year-old actor is also trying to tell his own stories and in recent years has evolved into a director/screenwriter as well, starting off with 2009's "Explicit Ills." His sophomore directorial effort looks like another small and intimate, personal work called "The End Of Love." It also boasts a meta aspect and stars himself as an actor named Mark and his real-life two-year-old son Issac. Here's the synopsis:

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.

"Life is just one damn thing after another, and it's to Webber's credit how expressively and naturally 'The End of Love' conveys that with no small amount of insight, grace, humor and feeling," we wrote in our review of the picture from Sundance.  Co-starring Amanda Seyfried, Jason Ritter, Jocelin Donahue, Michael Cera, Aubrey Plaza and Shannyn Sossaman,  a new, pretty damn awesome-looking trailer for the film has surfaced online today.  Due January 21st, 2013 via Visit Films, in this post you can see the new poster, a few new photos from the film, and below, the aforementioned trailer. Additionally, here's our conversation with Webber from Sundance.
