‘The End of the Tour’ World Premiere Is January 23 at Sundance Film Festival
The film, which stars Jesse Eisenberg and Jason Segel, was shot in and around Grand Rapids in early 2014.
Sundance describes the film:
Deeply emotional, insightful performances from Jason Segel and Jesse Eisenberg lay bare a heartbreaking screenplay by Pulitzer-Prize winner Donald Margulies. Directed with humor and tenderness by Sundance Film Festival veteran James Ponsoldt (‘The Spectacular Now’ and ‘Smashed’) and befitting the troubled soul of Wallace himself, ‘The End of the Tour’ is profound, surprising, and compellingly human.
The family of David Foster Wallace has come out against the film saying, “they have no connection with, and neither endorse nor support ‘The End of the Tour.'”
