Jane$9.75 - $11.75
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 (Cobain: Montage of Heck and The Kid Stays in the Picture) tells the story of Jane, a woman whose chimpanzee research challenged the male-dominated scientific consensus of her time and revolutionized our understanding of the natural world. Set to a rich orchestral score from legendary composer Philip Glass, the film offers an unprecedented, intimate portrait of Jane Goodall – a trailblazer who defied the odds to become one of the world’s most admired conservationists.
New York Times – “‘Jane’ will delight those familiar with Ms. Goodall and provide a vibrant introduction for newcomers.”
Boston Globe – “The film confronts not just the expected issue of environmentalism but also explores themes of survival, separation, loss, and death.”
Los Angeles Times – “Meeting a chimpanzee’s gaze, the pioneering researcher says she encountered ‘a thinking, reasoning personality.’ With ‘Jane,’ we see what she saw.”
AV Club – “A scripted biopic may still happen someday, but Jane’s candid portrait of her Gombe years arguably makes such a project redundant.”
Run time 1 hour 30 minutes.
