Ebert getting physical therapy

Pulitzer Prize-winning movie critic Roger Ebert is back at the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago, this time for physical therapy after a bout of pneumonia.

His wife, Chaz, said Ebert had been in the institute for a fractured hip. After his release he came down with pneumonia. After that cleared up, he returned to the Rehabilitation Institute for physical therapy.

The Eberts hope Roger will be released in time to attend Roger Ebert's Film Festival, also known as Ebertfest, from April 17-21 at the Virginia Theatre in downtown Champaign and on the University of Illinois campus, Roger Ebert's alma mater.
