#MediaMonday – “Life Itself”


It’s Monday and the last official day of the summer term! Since today is hot and humid (you’ve gotta love Missouri weather) what better way to “celebrate” than with #MediaMonday?! This is exactly the kind of day you want to spend INSIDE in the a/c watching a great film. Today we want to highlight the documentary “Life Itself.” Whether or not you’re a fan of movie critic Roger Ebert this is a film that’s worth watching.

To quote the documentary website: “Based on his bestselling memoir of the same name, Life Itself, explores the impact and legacy of Roger 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.

You can read more about it in the transcript of an NPR interview done with Ebert’s wife, Chaz. The trailer for the film is below:

You also might want to consider checking out Ebert’s website where you can find some great movie reviews.
