Following its downstate Illinois premiere at the 2014 Ebertfest, Life Itself returns to the Virginia for a week of special screenings starting July 28th!

This moving documentary 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.

Based on his bestselling memoir of the same name, Life Itself explores the legacy of Ebert's life, from his Pulitzer Prize-winning film criticism at the Chicago Sun-Times to becoming one of the most influential cultural voices in America.
