The story of the five-day interview between Rolling Stone reporter David Lipsky and acclaimed novelist David Foster Wallace, which took place right after the 1996 publication of Wallace's groundbreaking epic novel, 'Infinite Jest.'
After publication, David Foster Wallace agreed to be accompanied on his book tour by Rolling Stone reporter David Lipsky in what would become an exhaustive five-day conversation between the men that would leave them both enriched and altered by the experience.
Lipsky would go on to write about the interview in the critically acclaimed best-selling book 'Although of Course You End Up Becoming Yourself'. Many of the events and actual taped conversations from that marathon interview are used.
Cast includes Jason Segel, Jesse Eisenberg, Anna Chlumsky, Joan Cusack and Mamie Gummer.
"Brilliantly performed and smartly unconventional, The End of the Tour pays fitting tribute to a singular talent while offering profoundly poignant observations on the human condition." - Critics Consensus.

In the high-stakes pursuit of big-wall climbing, the Shark's Fin on Mount Meru may be the ultimate prize. Sitting 21,000 feet above the
sacred Ganges River in Northern India, the mountain's perversely stacked obstacles make it both a nightmare and an irresistible calling for
some of the world's toughest climbers.
In October 2008, renowned alpinists Conrad Anker (CRMS '81), Jimmy Chin and Renan Ozturk arrived in India to tackle Meru. Despite making it to within 100 meters of the elusive summit, their journey, like everyone before them, was not a successful one. Heartbroken and defeated, the trio returned to their everyday lives but Meru continued to beckon.
By September 2011, Anker had convinced his two lifelong friends to undertake the Shark's Fin once more, under even more extraordinary circumstances than their first attempt. MERU is the story of that journey, an expedition through nature's harshest elements and one's complicated inner demons, and ultimately on to impossible new heights.
