This premier suburban film group, brings the finest in foreign, art, and independent films available to audiences. A group discussion follows each screening. This presentation is the story the five-day interview between Rolling Stone reporter (and novelist) David Lipsky (Jesse Eisenberg) and acclaimed novelist David Foster Wallace (Jason Segel), which took place right after the 1996 publication of Wallace’s groundbreaking epic novel, "Infinite Jest."
