Magnolia made it official today, announcing that the release date for Steve James' "Life Itself" would be July 4, 2014. The film will open in New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, and other major markets on that date, while also being made available via Video On Demand day & date with its theatrical release.

The company also released an official synopsis for the acclaimed film based on the memoir by Roger Ebert:

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.
