Life Itself

From director Steve James (Hoop Dreams) comes a biopic based on the autobiography of film critic Roger Ebert. The film focuses primarily on his time as a critic for the Chicago Sun-Times as well as his years fighting cancer and the removal of his lower jaw. At times hilarious, heartbreaking and life affirming, Life Itself is one of the finest documentaries of this or any other year.
