Jane (PG)

Documentary, Biography

Using a trove of unseen footage, the film tells the story of Jane Goodall's early explorations, focusing on her groundbreaking field work, her relationship with cameraman and husband Hugo van Lawick, and the chimpanzees that she studied.

The critical consensus

A charming, formulaic portrait of a wonderful woman and the chimps in her life.

Matt Turner, Little White Lies, 20/11/2017

Primatologist Jane Goodall is the subject of a fascinating documentary from director Brett Morgen.

****(*)Matthew Turner, The List, 20/11/2017

It is still a fascinating affair, both as a natural history film and as a closely focused study of a woman who lived her own real-life version of The Jungle Book.

****(*)Geoffrey Macnab, The Independent, 22/11/2017

Jane Goodall’s research into chimp behaviour was a great leap forward in scientific research and this documentary does her work full justice.

****(*)Cath Clarke, The Guardian, 23/11/2017

It was the beginning of an extraordinary career that is celebrated in the elegant documentary Jane.
