The 2013 Black List script, written by Donald Margulies and directed by James Ponsoldt, had premiered the evening before to rave reviews. The Hollywood Reporter called it “a gorgeous portrait of the artist as reluctant subject… The performance is easily Segel’s best work,” while the Los Angeles Times lauded it as “intimate and insightful… one comes away from the film with a distinct feeling that it has done right by the spirit of the late author’s writing.”
Actor Jason Segel joined the group for the dinner, as did Ron Livingston, Mamie Gummer and Mickey Sumner. But writer Donald Margulies and director James Ponsoldt were the real stars of the evening and each cast member sang the praises of Margulies’s script.
THE END OF THE TOUR sold to A24 just before the festival started, so look for the film in theaters near you later this year!
