The End of the Tour
September 9, 2015 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm
Screening Wed. Sept. 9.
THE END OF THE TOUR is a real life story based on a five day conversation between a good writer and a great one with differing views of fame and celebrity. It is a refreshingly original, whip-smart, funny, and touching examination of the human condition, with Jason Segel giving the performance of his career, potently catching the internal conflicts of celebrated novelist David Foster Wallace . Also starring Jesse Eisenberg as writer David Lipsky.
New York Times Critics Pick
“It’s ultimately a movie – one of the most rigorous and thoughtful I’ve seen – about the ethical and existential traps our fame-crazed culture sets for the talented and the mediocre alike.” – A.O. Scott, New York Times
“Road trips are a fairly routine framework for movies, often with a focus on two traveling companions. Never have I seen one that moved me so close to tears as THE END OF THE TOUR, which transforms that common clay into a work of beauty. ” – Colin Covert, Minneapolis Star Tribune
“It’s a profoundly moving story about a towering talent who seemed to feel too much and judge himself too harshly to stick around for long.” – Chris Nashawaty, Entertainment Weekly
