Life Itself

A Film By Steve James

Based on his bestselling memoir of the same name, Life Itself explores the impact and legacy of world-renowned film critic and social commentator Roger Ebert, from his Pulitzer Prize-winning film criticism at the Chicago Sun-Times to becoming one of the most influential cultural voices in America.

Directed by acclaimed director Steve James (Hoop DreamsThe Interrupters) with Martin Scorsese (The DepartedRaging Bull) and Steven Zaillian (Schindler’s ListMoneyball) as executive producers, this feature documentary recounts Roger’s inspiring and entertaining life – a story that is by turns personal, wistful, funny, painful, and uplifting. It comes to DVD on 23 February 2015 courtesy of Dogwoof, following its much lauded cinema release.
