The End of the Tour
First screened in July 2015
Director: James Ponsoldt. Cast: Jesse Eisenberg, Jason Segel, Mamie Gummer, Mickey Sumner, Joan Cusack, Anna Chlumsky, Ron Livingston. Screenplay: Donald Margulies (based on the book Although of Course You End Up Becoming Yourself by David Lipsky).

Twitter Capsule: Sometimes now is scary because outwardly it seems so spectacular. Ponsoldt and cast movingly convey that idea.

VOR:   Assumes a modest aspect, and has stirred discontent among those closest to Wallace. His legacy aside, though, this is disarmingly sensitive and thoughtful, about writers and about men.
