I'm not sure it was last week, but recently on the podcast I mentioned a movie that I was looking forward to because its trailer alone basically devastated me. Well, that film, a nice-sized success at Sundance, now has a March 1st release date.
It's called The End of Love and it was written and directed by and stars Mark Webber of one of my favorite movies pretty much ever, Scott Pilgrim vs. The World. In the movie, Webber plays himself as a struggling actor and recent widower and he casts his real-life little boy as the son he's trying desperately to be a single father to. His real Hollywood friends also make appearances as themselves.
The emotion is raw, honest and moving in a way that makes me both want desperately to see the film and terrified of its effect on me. This is one I'm probably going to wind up seeing alone because, to be honest, I just don't think I want anyone witnessing my reaction to a lot of it.
Here's the new trailer for The End of Love.
