Thumbs up for the trailer to Roger Ebert doco ‘Life Itself’

Roger Ebert - Life Itself

Here come the waterworks. Newly arrived online is the trailer for Roger Ebert documentary Life Itself.

Directed by Chicago legend Steve James (Hoop Dreams), it documents Ebert’s time as  Pulitzer Prize-winning critic for the Chicago Sun Times and eventual TV star thanks to his pioneering review show At the Movies.

Ebert passed away in 2013, during the making of the movie, following a decade-long battle with cancer; a battle that saw him lose his lower jaw and the ability to speak.

Life Itself makes its Australian debut at the upcoming Sydney Film Festival. We’ll be seeing it.
