Acclaimed director Steve James (Hoop Dreams) and executive producers Martin Scorsese (The Departed) and Steven Zaillian (Moneyball) present LIFE ITSELF, a documentary film that 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 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.

The film is 1 hour, 56 minutes.
A message from Sara, the host:
Unfortunately, this film is not playing in Oakland or Berkeley, as far as I can tell, hence San Rafael.
The film starts at 6:15. I'll do my best to be standing outside the theatre at 6 pm so that we can enter and sit together. I'll email participants with my cell number by 10 am Sat July 12, so that if we don't sit together, you can text and find me after the movie. After the movie, we'll walk one block to Aroma Cafe, which serves sandwiches and salads as well as coffee. The discussion will probably last around an hour.
I would be willing meet up to 4 participants at the Ashby BART station between 5:15 and 5:30 to carpool to San Rafael. Please let me know by 10 am Sat July 12 if you want a ride. I will leave promptly at 5:30, so you will miss me if you are not on time. After the movie, I'll drop you off at the Ashby BART station.
