Apr 8, 2013  •  Post A Comment

The last review by Pulitzer Prize-winning film critic Roger Ebert, who died Thursday, was posted to his website Sunday, reports TheWrap.com.

The review is for the movie "To the Wonder," directed by Terrence Malick and starring Ben Affleck and Rachel McAdams, and Ebert’s review is generally positive.

Below is the final paragraph:

"There will be many who find ‘To the Wonder’ elusive and too effervescent. They’ll be dissatisfied by a film that would rather evoke than supply. I understand that, and I think Terrence Malick does, too. But here he has attempted to reach more deeply than that: to reach beneath the surface, and find the soul in need."

Ebert’s funeral service will be held today (Monday) in Chicago, while a memorial is planned for Thursday, according to TheWrap.
