The End of the Tour

by James Ponsoldt Gala Premieres

“Imagine a road trip. And the best discussion you ever had in your life.” As unconventional as he was celebrated, David Foster Wallace published his groundbreaking novel ‘Infinite Jest’ in 1996. During his promotional tour for the book, over a period of five days, he was accompanied by Rolling Stone journalist David Lipsky. The result was a series of ingeniously sensitive interview discussions on such topics as pop culture, depression, dog ownership and the pros and cons of fame. THE END OF THE TOUR is based on Lipsky’s memoirs published in 2010, two years after Wallace committed suicide, which highlight this unique road trip. Jesse Eisenberg as Lipsky and Jason Segel in the heartwrenching role of Wallace exceed themselves in James Ponsoldt’s biopic.
