South by Southwest 2014 kicks off this week with a terrific slate of indie comedies and dramas (here are our ten most anticipated films of the fest). We've got the first look at one of them: "We'll Never Have Paris," from directors Jocelyn Towne and Simon Helberg (who wrote the film). 

The film stars Helberg -- who also stars in TV's "The Big Bang Theory," if you're into that -- as Quinn, a neurotic mess of a man in a quarter-life crisis that explodes when a coworker (Maggie Grace) confesses her love for him mere moments before he was to propose to his girlfriend (Melanie Lynskey). And so, Quinn up-and-leaves his longtime partner for a brush with love -- regretting his decision almost instantly.

Helberg's directorial debut also stars Zachary Quinto, Alfred Molina and Jason Ritter. Check out the poster debut below.
