About the Movie

Drawing from over 100 hours of never-before-seen footage that has been tucked away in the National Geographic archives for over 50 years, award-winning director Brett Morgen tells the story of JANE, a woman whose chimpanzee research challenged the scientific consensus of her time and revolutionized our understanding of the natural world. Set to a rich orchestral score from composer Philip Glass.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: Full of vivid greens and sun-backlit wildlife imagery, Van Lawick's shots are beautifully composed yet not too formal looking, thanks to the warm, grainy quality of 16-millimeter film. "Jane" looks like an old home movie directed by David Lean. – Carla Meyer, San Francisco Chronicle, Oct 26, 2017

Fresh: The film confronts not just the expected issue of environmentalism but also explores themes of survival, separation, loss, and death. – Peter Keough, Boston Globe, Nov 2, 2017

Fresh: For all the advancements that Goodall brought to our understanding of chimpanzees, the real lesson of "Jane" may be that it is connection - whether among humans or chimpanzees - that is the true measure of a species. – Pat Padua, Washington Post, Oct 26, 2017

Fresh: Like so many women in pursuit of their studies, Goodall had to tolerate being studied herself. – J. R. Jones, Chicago Reader, Jan 19, 2018
