Sun-Times critic Roger Ebert suffers bone fracture

Updated: December 7, 2012 8:02AM

Sun-Times film critic Roger Ebert has been hospitalized to repair a bone fracture in the hip area.

He felt a sharp pain in his leg earlier this week, said his wife, Chaz, and when it didn’t subside, he underwent tests. His doctors then determined that he had a fracture.

He hopes to be back at the movies, Chaz Ebert said, in a week or so. “I am eager to see the remaining movies of the year,” he said, “so I can complete my best films of the year list.”
