Critic Reviews for Jane
Perhaps we've all been spoilt by 'Blue Planet', but that original footage doesn't feel strong enough stretched out over 90 minutes.
Jane is Brett Morgen's gorgeous, convincing new documentary on Jane Goodall, the one-time ape watcher and current UN messenger of peace.
Goodall has left her mark on the world and this documentary ably and engagingly celebrates that legacy.
Writer-director Brett Morgen makes the most of both the find and his still-living subject: image and story alike are packed with rich color and affecting detail.
The film confronts not just the expected issue of environmentalism but also explores themes of survival, separation, loss, and death.
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.
