A film by James Ponsoldt, USA 2015, 106’, original version (with Italian subtitles)
Starring Jesse Eisenberg, Anna Chlumsky, Jason Segel, Joan Cusack

A Rolling Stone reporter (Jesse Eisenberg, better than ever) is on tour with David Foster Wallace (the writer who committed suicide in 2008, considered to be the greatest contemporary innovator of the American novel). Between the two inexorably rises a indefinable mass of curiosity, competition, ill-concealed rancour and lastly even sincerity and affection. Or perhaps not? The first flash of light within an exemplary, hermetic and unknown biography.
