Movie Info

It would be hard to name anyone who has had more of an impact in the realm of animal research and wildlife conservation than Dr. Jane Goodall, Dame of the British Empire, founder of the Jane Goodall Institute (JGI) and UN Messenger of Peace. Dr. Goodall's pioneering study of wild chimpanzee behavior in Africa is legendary and continues today, more than 50 years later, under the auspices of her Institute. Jane's Journey is a portrait of the private person behind the world-famous icon. It is the story of an exceptional woman, possibly one of the most fascinating women of our time. With its unhurried pace and unobtrusive camera, this documentary shows the charismatic and eloquent Dr. Goodall as she has never been seen before. -- (C) First Run

Positivity has its limits in "Jane's Journey," a portrait of primatologist Jane Goodall that's long on adulation and short on spark.

September 23, 2011 | Rating: 2/5

Now in her 70s, Goodall is still shy, with as much indefatigible energy as ever.

You may have the feeling of being stuck at a nice old lady's house while she narrates a meandering slide show in slow, storybook tones.

September 16, 2011 | Rating: 1/4 | Full Review…

Skimps on intellectual substance but skirts by on the lightly likable charm of its subject, who appears throughout.

September 15, 2011 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Any analysis of her philanthropy or character is traded for blind idol worship...

September 14, 2011 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

Spectacularly photographed and journalistically lame...
