(2015) A drama that centers around a few days of heady and insightful conversation in 1996 between two writers, one of them the acclaimed David Foster Wallace, who died in 2008. The film premiered at this year’s Sundance Film Festival and stars Jason Segel as Wallace and Jesse Eisenberg (“The Social Network”) as David Lipsky, who was then a writer for Rolling Stone and later wrote a memoir on which the film is based.
According to film critic Brian Tallerico, Segel brings a “deep blend of insecurity, melancholy and remarkable intelligence” to his performance. “It is a film about incredibly smart people made by incredibly smart people, and (about) that embrace of not just intellectual pursuit but what the chase does to you.”
Segel and director James Ponsoldt will be guests.
