A documentary about the life of Roger Ebert directed by Oscar-nominated filmmaker Steve James (Hoop Dreams, The Interrupters). Roger Ebert was a beloved national figure and arguably our best-known and most influential movie critic, and his passing in 2013 was deeply felt across the country. Based on his memoir of the same name, Life Itself recounts his fascinating and flawed journeyfrom politicized school newspaperman, to Chicago Sun-Times movie critic, to Pulitzer Prize winner, to television household name, to the miracle of finding love at 50, and finally his third act as a major voice on the Internet when he could no longer physically speak.
