Click image to view trailer
Based on the bestselling memoir of the same name, Life Itself is an intensely moving documentary recounting the entertaining and inspiring life of world-renowned film critic and social commentator Roger Ebert. Acclaimed director Steve James (Hoop Dreams) and executive producers Martin Scorsese and Steven Zaillian explore Ebert’s life and legacy- a story by turns funny, painful and transcendent- from Ebert’s journalistic beginnings to his Pulitzer Prize for film criticism, and from his popular, influential television partnership with Gene Siskel to the illness that could not silence his creative voice. Onscreen interviews include his wife Chaz Ebert, as well as filmmakers Werner Herzog, Errol Morris, Gregory Nava and Martin Scorsese, and fellow critics A.O. Scott, Richard Corliss and Jonathan Rosenbaum. Writer/Director: Steve James. (US 2014) 120 min.
Roger Ebert’s Final Hollywood Premiere: Can A Movie About A Movie Critic Be Oscar Bound?
“Life Itself is itself about the remarkable life of Roger Ebert. And in a summer full of the kind of loud, bombastic popcorn blockbusters Ebert would review dutifully week after week, this is an alternative that definitely deserves a Thumbs Up.”
– Pete Hammond | Deadline Hollywood
