A magazine reporter recounts his travels and conversations with author David Foster Wallace during a promotional book tour.
Directed by James Ponsoldt (Smashed and The Spectacular Now) and starring Jason Segel and Jesse Eisenberg

Pretty sure everyone at Eccles wanted to hug Jason Segel, such an endearing performance #EndOfTheTour #Sundance

Segel really is something as David Foster Wallace. A complex performance, but also incredibly endearing.

Can't say enough about the 2 lead performances. I CANNOT WAIT to see Jesse's take on Lex Luthor. He's a fascinating actor.

End Of The Tour: career best performance by Jason Segel. Intimate, soul-barring & truly winning. Will be a big stand out hit, deservedly so

I haven't read a word of David Foster Wallace, but I thought THE END OF THE TOUR was brilliant. Jason Segel has never been better. Loved it.

Anne Thompson @akstanwyck
Jason Segal gives brilliant awards worthy performance as David Foster Wallace in daringly talky road movie The End of the Tour. #sundance

Jack Giroux @JackGi
Jason Segel is really terrific in The End of the Tour. A surprisingly moving performance. #Sundance

The End of the Tour is wonderful. Jason Segel’s career-changing performance as DFW is just one of many superlatives to call out. #sundance

Loved both Smashed and Spectacular Now, Ponsoldt is a promising director. This sounds like another good one.

Smashed was killer. Winstead deserved a best actress nom.

I've only read some of David Foster Wallace's essays, but I really wanna start Infinite Jest soon. Great writer.

Also I love it when comedic actors do serious roles so I'm in.
