The End of the Tour

About the Film

With the 1996 release of his totemic novel Infinite Jest, David Foster Wallace (Jason Segel) became an overnight literary sensation, a brainy yet zeitgeist-capturing writer with as many fanatically devoted followers as he had harsh detractors. Yet Wallace, with all his newfound celebrity, could be found teaching English at Illinois State University and living in a modest house in the suburbs with his dogs. Into this scenario comes David Lipsky (Jesse Eisenberg), a Rolling Stone reporter (and struggling novelist, natch) with hopes of getting inside the life and mind of Wallace over the course of an intimate five-day interview at the end of Wallace’s book tour. Buoyed by exceptional performances from Segel and Eisenberg, this compelling, often funny two-hander features a sharp script by Pulitzer Prize-winner Donald Margulies and marks the return of filmmaker James Ponsoldt (The Spectacular Now) to NFF.
