Directed by James Ponsoldt | 2015

With Jason Segel, Jesse Eisenberg

During the final leg of the tour for his landmark 1996 novel Infinite Jest, breakout author David Foster Wallace (Jason Segel, in a career-best performance) is joined on the road by reporter David Lipsky (Jesse Eisenberg), who shadows Wallace’s every move for an in-depth Rolling Stone profile. Five days of conversation are recorded on tape, revealing Wallace’s insecurity with his newfound celebrity, his enduring depression, and the pair’s unique but precarious connection, which evolves from mistrust to admiration and understanding. Based on Lipsky’s best-selling memoir and penned by Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Donald Margulies, The End of the Tour—directed by BAMcinemaFest alum James Ponsoldt (The Spectacular Now, BAMcinemaFest 2013)—is a moving tribute to a beloved author gone too soon. An A24 release.
