Duo acquire N. American rights to Webber drama
“Love,” which debuted at Sundance in January, is a Here Now production in association with Poor Rich Kids. Producers are Webber, Liz Destro and Matt Sprague.
The film stars Webber, Shannyn Sossamon and Webber’s real-life son Isaac Love. Michael Cera, Jason Ritter, Amanda Seyfried, Aubrey Plaza and Jocelin Donahue also appear.
Gravitas will release “Love” on VOD on Jan. 21, with a theatrical release from Variance Films beginning March 1 in select markets.
Webber, who also penned the script, portrays a struggling actor forced to grapple with his inability to grow up when the mother of his 2-year-old son Isaac suddenly passes away.
Variety’s Rob Nelson gave the film a mixed review at Sundance: “Oddly overstuffed with cameos by bigscreen actors playing tongue-in-cheek versions of themselves, Webber’s Los Angeles-set, microbudget dramedy delivers some rare and beautiful moments of daddy day-care, but its tone shifts more wildly than a preschooler’s disposition and its narrative is stillborn.”
