INFINITE JEST

Somewhere in the not-so-distant future, the residents of Ennet House, a Boston halfway house for recovering addicts, and students at the nearby Enfield Tennis Academy are ensnared in the search for the master copy of Infinite Jest – a movie said to be so dangerously entertaining its viewers become entranced and expire in a state of catatonic bliss…

Based on the highly acclaimed novel by David Foster Wallace, this film attempts to be the ultimate entertainment predicted by its visionary author.
