Based on his bestselling memoir of the same name, LIFE ITSELF explores the impact and legacy of Roger Ebert’s life, from his Pulitzer Prize-winning career as a film critic at the Chicago Sun-Times to becoming one of the most influential cultural voices in America.
Producer/Director Steve James, who is best known for his award-winning 1994 film HOOP DREAMS, brings together an impressive A-list cast of Ebert’s contemporaries to tell the story of “the only thing Roger loved more than movies.” Famous faces sharing their memories of Ebert Martin Scorsese (who also served as the film’s executive producer), Werner Herzog, Errol Morris, his wife Chaz Ebert, and - of course - his thumbs up/thumbs down partner for almost 25 years, Gene Siskel.
Called "Wonderful, inspiring, sad and also charming” by FilmThreat.com, LIFE ITSELF celebrates Ebert’s luminous career, but also captures in a stark and honest way his final battle with the cancer that ultimately took his life in in 2013.
