The End of the Tour

Rated R 106 minutes 2015

Actors Jason Segel and Jesse Eisenberg get a workout in the roles, respectively, of novelist David Foster Wallace – author of the best-selling Infinite Jest — and the Rolling Stone reporter who spends five days profiling him in 1996, David Lipsky. Their two-man show (with slight digressions) would have been a wet noodle of character study without Segel’s magnetic performance, Eisenberg’s second-banana mannerisms, and the naturalistic dialogue of playwright-turned-screenwriter Donald Margulies, nudged along by director James Ponsoldt (The Spectacular Now). As is, it’s a thoughtful art film with a legitimate literary sheen (106 min.).
