The first trailer and poster for writer/director/star Mark Webber’s drama The End of Love have been released online. It’s curious timing, as the film first premiered at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival nearly a year ago, and the 2013 Sundance Film Festival gets underway later this week. Webber stars in the film as a struggling actor and widower who must confront the real-life consequences that his choices have on his two-year-old son. Scott Pilgrim vs. The World fans will be happy to see some of Webber’s co-stars pop up here like Michael Cera and Aubrey Plaza, but the central focus looks to be on an intimate and rather emotional father-son drama.

Here’s the official synopsis for The End of Love:
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.
