Not since My Dinner with Andre has a film found such drama in the deceptively simple act of two people talking. The End of the Tour takes place over five days in 1996, as author David Foster Wallace (played by Jason Segel) drives across the Midwest towards the end of his Infinite Jest book tour, accompanied by journalist David Lipsky (Jesse Eisenberg), hired to write a profile for Rolling Stone. After Wallace’s suicide in 2008, Lipsky published a book of their (taped) conversations on writing, fame, women, sports, music, drugs, and despair. Sometimes sparring, sometimes managing to connect, these conversations – and this unconventional film – are gifts that should not be missed. 106 min.

“An illuminating meditation on art and life with Jason Segel giving the performance of his career!” Peter Travers, Rolling Stone.
