end of the tour release date

Briefly: One of the best films of the 2015 Sundance Film Festival, James Ponsoldt‘s The End of the Tour, just got a release date. It’ll begin a limited release July 31 from A24, with an eye on an eventual Oscar run.

The film tells the true story of a days-long interview between literary sensation¬†David Foster Wallace (Jason Segel, who has rarely been better) and¬†Rolling Stone reporter¬†David Lipsky (Jesse Eisenberg). We loved it at Sundance and you can read our review here. Thompson on Hollywood has a write up on how the summer release date won’t hurt its Oscar chances.
