1. “The End of the Tour”

Box office: $3 million

“Spotlight” may sweep awards season as Hollywood’s valentine to journalists, but this biographical drama by James Ponsoldt is among the genre’s best — in the same league as “Almost Famous” or “Shattered Glass.” Like a “Frost/Nixon” for a younger generation, this film traces the five days in 1996 that Rolling Stone reporter David Lipsky (Jesse Eisenberg) spent profiling David Foster Wallace (Jason Segel) following the publication of his magnum opus “Infinite Jest.” Eisenberg delivers his finest performance since “The Social Network,” by making the prototype of a hungry magazine-writer come alive, but Segel, who has been typecast as a comedic everyman in films like “Forgetting Sarah Marshall,” steals the picture in a dramatic transformation that should elevate the trajectory of his career.
