Wrekin Hill Releasing Mark Webber's 'End of Love' Sundance Fave
Another one of my favorite films from Sundance this year has been acquired for distribution. And it's one that really needed a good distributor, too. Variety reports that Wrekin Hill (Hesher, The Flowers of War, Comic-Con: Episode IV doc) has acquired Mark Webber's The End of Love, his film starring Mark and his 2-year-old son that he wrote and directed. It's a raw, but intimate and captivating look at a relationship between a baby boy and his father, and I highly suggest seeing it when it comes out. Which, the good news is, this film will get a day-and-date theatrical and VOD release this year, so everyone will be able to watch it.
Mark Webber's The End of Love premiered at Sundance 2012 and stars Webber (who you might recognize from Scott Pilgrim, Shrink or The Lie), Shannyn Sossamon, even Michael Cera briefly, but primarily his 2-year-old son, Isaac Love. We recorded a video blog of our thoughts after seeing it, and also interviewed Mark at the festival (watch that here). It was one of my favorites of the fest because it shows how camera technology (like Canon 5Ds) have allowed us to capture truly intimate, realistic moments as part of a film, and it's a beautiful look at just what can come of something like that. The plan is to release the film in late summer or early fall this year. We'll definitely keep you updated on release info, as this is one to watch for.
