Roger Ebert, the Chicago Sun-Times/Universal Press Syndicate movie critic, has recovered enough from jaw-cancer complications to attend the Sept. 6-15 Toronto International Film Festival.

In an e-mail interview with Toronto Star movie critic Peter Howell, Ebert said he’s now walking three to six miles a day — and often attending three film screenings a day in Chicago.

The Pulitzer Prize-winning columnist still can’t speak, but is awaiting surgery that will hopefully restore that ability.
