2014 Sundance Film Festival Predictions: Mark Webber’s The Ever After

Not that it is shrouded in mystery, but Mark Webber has a distinct way of working that might be regarded Cassavetes-like for his realism and making his narratives into true family affairs – we only need to reference The End of Love (Sundance ’12) as a prime example. And speaking of family, Webber reteams with cinematographer Patrice Lucien Cochet and here partners up with Teresa Palmer – the actress and actor are attached at the limb in more than just a creative manner. Filming commenced on The Ever After in Australia earlier in the year and apparently moved from Los Angeles and New York in July and August, which means a rough cut could have been submitted. Webber, Palmer, pint-sized Phoebe Tonkin, Jaime King, Rosario Dawson, Melissa Leo, Joshua Leonard, Tahyna Tozzi, Kid Cudi and Tom Bower are part of the film’s make-up and Before Midnight was such a hit last year that martial highs and lows might be welcomed once again. Plus we would definitely want to hit a Kid Cudi after-party.

Gist: Penned by Palmer and Webber, the script is about a brutal love story that explores the depths of marriage.

Production Co./Producers: Eric Binns, Palmer and Webber.

Prediction: U.S. Dramatic Competition or Premieres showing – SXSW certainly seems like a good fit if Sundance passes.

U.S. Distributor: Rights Available
