SYNOPSIS: Roger Ebert is the best-known film critic of our time. He reviewed films for the Chicago Sun-Times since 1967, and was the first film critic ever to win a Pulitzer Prize. He appeared on television for four decades, including twenty-three years as co-host of Siskel & Ebert at the Movies. Sadly, he passed away in 2013. In 2006, complications from thyroid cancer treatment resulted in the loss of his ability to eat, drink, or speak. But with the loss of his voice, Ebert has only become a more prolific and influential writer. And now, for the first time, he tells the full, dramatic story of his life and career. Roger Ebert's journalism carried him on a path far from his nearly idyllic childhood in Urbana, Illinois. It is a journey that began as a reporter for his local daily, and took him to Chicago, where he was unexpectedly given the job of film critic for the Sun-Times, launching a lifetime's adventures.
