The End of the Tour documents an encounter between David Foster Wallace and Rolling Stone writer David Lipsky, who tagged along for the end of the press tour for Wallace’s Infinite Jest. Lipsky’s book, Although of Course You End Up Becoming Yourself,
chronicles the five days he spent with Wallace and serves as the basis
for the film.
The Spectacular Now’s Sutter (Miles Teller) leads a good life, a
damned good life for an onscreen high school senior. He may

comedies of the 1980s, because if you squint and tilt your head to the
left a little, Sutter is the modern-day incarnation of Ferris Bueller.
