“The End of the Tour” will make its world premiere at Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah, on Jan. 23, 2015.

The film, which stars Jesse Eisenberg and Jason Segel, was shot in and around Grand Rapids in early 2014. 

“The End of the Tour” is the story of writer David Foster Wallace (Jason Segel) and Rolling Stone‘s David Lipsky (Jesse Eisenberg) together for a five-day interview.

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.'”

Some of the film was shot in the radio studios and offices of Townsquare Media Grand Rapids, which is home to 100.5 The River, 97.9 WGRD, Channel 95.7, Greatest Hits 98.7 WFGR and 1410 AM The Touch.
