I have been anxiously awaiting this movie since I first heard of its development, and now we finally have a trailer! The End of the Tour is based off of David Lipsky’s account of travelling with esteemed author David Foster Wallace during the book tour for the novel that made him famous.
The book that this is based on is a beautiful narrative combined with the staggering genius of Wallace and his work, and is well worth a read. I’ve heard good things about Segal in this role, and it really looks like he’s killing it.
If you haven’t read any Wallace before, Infinite Summer is just around the corner – read Infinite Jest at the pace of just 75 pages a week!
The End of the Tour is scheduled for wide release on July 31st, 2015
