A new documentary film "Life Itself" from director Steve James ("Hoop Dreams") based on Ebert's memoir of the same name, recounts his fascinating and flawed journey—from politicized school newspaperman, to Chicago Sun-Times movie critic, to Pulitzer Prize winner, to television household name, to the miracle of finding love at 50, and finally his “third act” as a major voice on the Internet when he could no longer physically speak.

"Life Itself" is among the top documentary premieres at the upcoming Sundance Film Festival beginning Thursday, January 16, 2014 in Park City, Utah.
