Based on David Lipsky’s book Although Of Course You End Up Becoming Yourself: A Road Trip with David Foster Wallace (Broadway Books, 2010), this forthcoming film follows Lipsky's five-day interview with David Foster Wallace just after the publication of his book Infinite Jest (Little, Brown, 1996). The film is directed by James Ponsoldt with a screenplay by Donald Margulies.
