IFFBoston: First Dispatch

The-End-of-the-Tour_0

“There may be no more fitting way to kick off a celebration of storytellers than with a portrait of a storyteller, so combining Independent Film Festival Boston with The End of the Tour feels simply felicitous. This is the second time a James Ponsoldt film has commenced festivities at New England’s largest film festival; he opened IFFBoston in 2013 with The Spectacular Now. But repeat appearances aside, Ponsoldt’s adaptation of Although of Course You End Up Becoming Yourself, David Lipsky’s chronicle of a five-day road trip with the late, great Infinite Jest author David Foster Wallace, feels particularly significant to the eight-day event for a plethora of reasons (beyond the quietly awesome presence of Jason Segel, who plays Wallace in the film).” (Via Paste Magazine.)
