Did James Ponsoldt just premiere the best film at Sundance once again? How could a film about an author on a book tour be that compelling? When you’ve got Jason Segel delivering an incredible performance as David Foster Wallace along side Jesse Eisenberg as David Lipsky, it can be. If you haven’t seen any of Ponsoldt’s films, go watch “The Spectacular Now” and then go watch this. Anyway, filmed in Ohio and Minnesota, this seemingly simple story generated a lot of applause sessions in Park City. We absolutely loved it. Joan Cusack delivers a perfect supporting role as a Minnesotan tour guide/escort as well.
