Their disparate sons, Matthew (played by Zach Gilford) and Henry (played by Graham Rogers), have no idea what to do when their mother refuses to come out of her bedroom for days on end which turns into weeks.

•• Thursday was a sad day in Hollywood and the world over had to say goodbye to highly revered film critic Roger Ebert. Ebert, who had been battling thyroid cancer since 2002. Given the statement he made on Wednesday that he would continue reviewing movies of his choice, it was shocking to learn that cancer took Ebert’s life so soon. Roger Ebert wielded the mightiest thumb in Hollywood. That thumb helped inform what we see, and helped us understand what we saw. Ebert, who democratized the medium of film criticism and made it amenable to the masses, died Thursday after a lengthy battle with cancer. He was 70.
His name was synonymous with the movies and his was often the first voice you’d seek when looking up reviews. “Well, what did Ebert think?” He had been a critic for so long that he reviewed just about every movie you could ever hope to read about, and he was trusted enough that his views were always respected, even when you disagreed with him. He was Ebert. He was a titan. He never lost his passion for the movies, or his work. His reviews will live on long after his death not just as published works, but as a voice inside the heads of his many admirers. He will be missed.
In the wake of Ebert’s death, Hollywood is taking to Twitter to remember the amazing man who was the first film critic ever to win the Pulitzer Prize. See what Virginia said about Ebert’s death below.
