LIFE ITSELF, by acclaimed director Steve James (Hoop Dreams), recounts the inspiring and entertaining life of world-renowned film critic and social commentator Roger Ebert – a story that is by turns personal, funny, painful, and transcendent.
“As sad as its finale was, the life of film critic Roger Ebert had as much incident, drama and joy as any ten movies he ever reviewed, and this completely absorbing doc tells his deeply human story with rare truth and beauty.” – David Noh, Film Journal International
” LIFE ITSELF is a joy. It celebrates colorful characters, an indomitable spirit and a generous mind.” – Joe Neumaier, New York Daily News
“Richly satisfying. Comprehensive, engrossing, unflinching, and moving.” – Todd McCarthy, Hollywood Reporter
