About the Movie
It would be hard to name anyone who has had more of an impact in the realm of animal research and wildlife conservation than Jane Goodall, whose 45-year study of wild chimpanzees in Africa is legendary. In Jane's Journey, we travel with her across several continents, from her childhood home in England, to the Gombe National Park in Tanzania. This is where she began her groundbreaking research and where she still returns every year to enjoy the company of the chimpanzees that made her famous. Featuring a wide range of interviews and spectacular footage from her own private collection, including her years in Gombe, Jane's Journey is an inspiring portrait of the private person behind the world-famous icon.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Skimps on intellectual substance but skirts by on the lightly likable charm of its subject, who appears throughout.
Rotten: Positivity has its limits in "Jane's Journey," a portrait of primatologist Jane Goodall that's long on adulation and short on spark.
Rotten: Spectacularly photographed and journalistically lame...
Fresh: Now in her 70s, Goodall is still shy, with as much indefatigible energy as ever.
