Wednesday, October 22   8:00 PM at Nyack Center
Directed by Steve James
USA, 2014, 120 minutes, documentary

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 from his Pulitzer Prize-winning film criticism at the Chicago Sun-Times to his becoming one of the most influential cultural voices in America.

"A thrilling tale with unforgettable characters. Ebert's life contained as much melodrama, tragedy and uplift as any weepie movie he reviewed. Any biographical documentary demands on-screen star quality, and this one has a hero and a heroine worth rooting for."  Richard Corliss, Time

"**** Tremendously moving even if you haven't been to the movies in years. It is simply a great story."  Ty Burr, Boston Globe

"A work of deftness and delicacy, by turns a film about illness and death, about writing, about cinema and finally, and very movingly, a film about love."  Geoffrey O'Brien, The New York Times

"Deeply moving. It may sound like a film that would only be of interest to fellow film critics, but the opposite is true. Director James has unerring instincts as to what parts of Ebert's story are worth spending time on."  Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times
