Jesse Eisenberg plays a Rolling Stone writer who spends 5 days interviewing David Foster Wallace (Jason Segel), the author of acclaimed novel “Infinite Jest.” This is essentially a road trip that absorbingly explores the awkward, anxious relationship that develops during their short encounter. Segel is subdued, yet compellingly complex, as he handles the character’s elaborate discourse and emotional density. Eisenberg plays the role of eager, besotted listener with his typical hesitant confidence. Even though this is primarily a duo dialogue, the skillful screenplay by Donald Margulies and controlled direction by James Ponsoldt help make every moment enthralling. A fascinating exploration of creativity, ego and communication. NOTE: Stay thru the closing titles for one last moment.

 

4 out of 5 stars (4 / 5)
