“A film that illuminates like few others the singular pleasure of shared discovery of one another's sensibility.”~Kyle Smith, New York Post
Aroview: Surprisingly engrossing account of the five-day interview between the late David Foster Wallace and reporter David Lipsky taking place shortly before the publication of Wallace's career-defining novel, 'Infinite Jest.'
The screenplay was based on actual transcripts and lends the drama a veritable naturalism as the sparring intellects explore culture, celebrity and artistic and journalistic integrity. Sure to resonate particularly with "Gen X-ers", even if unfamiliar with the author.
5 stars (Exceptional) A superbly light touch for serious themes, and enthralling chemistry between the two leads, mean this film hooks you without you even realising it. Wise, witty, sad and true. Loved it.~fairbrother
