Freeheld stumbles over too many hurdles to recommend it. The film’s heart is in the right place, but its focus is not.
Hangout with us Wednesday, June 18, on Roger Ebert's Birthday and you may leave with tickets to the Los Angeles, Chicago, or New York Premieres of "Life Itself"! It's Roger's birthday, but YOU may be the lucky person to end up with a major prize!
Next Wednesday, June 18, is my dear Roger's birthday, and I am personally
inviting you to help us celebrate him and the new movie about him.
Along with RogerEbert.com, I am hosting a major event on Google+
Hangout. I will be joined by the award-winning director of "Life
Itself," Steve James. The Hangout will be moderated by editor-in-chief
of RogerEbert.com, Matt Zoller Seitz and will include members of The
Ebert Club, Indiegogo supporters of the movie, and surprise guests. We
will have a lively discussion about movies, Roger's life, influence, and
the upcoming release of "Life Itself."
The Hangout takes place live from Los Angeles on the morning of June 18 at 11 am Pacific (Noon Mountain Time; 1 pm Central; 2pm Eastern).
Join us here:
