Based on his memoir of the same name, Life Itself recounts the surprising and entertaining life of world-renowned film critic and social commentator Roger Ebert – a story that’s by turns personal, wistful, funny, painful, and transcendent.

“How fitting that America’s most important movie critic has become the subject of a fine movie himself.” – Colin Covert, Minneapolis Star Tribune

“A captivating portrait of a man who embraced life and art, whose spirit never flagged even when his body did.” – Alonso Duralde, TheWrap

“This is a uniquely powerful motion picture, the kind of open and honest portrayal I can’t ever recall having seen about a celebrity.” – James Berardinelli, ReelViews

“James cuts – as in all of his best work – straight to the human heart of the matter, celebrating both the writer and the man, the one inseparable from the other, largely in Ebert’s own words.” – Scott Foundas, Variety
