“Few films this year offer up such lush and beautiful formal components as Jane (Glass’ score is, to be noted, also very lovely), but Morgen has also made a film of deep emotional beauty, the kind of satisfying, stick-with-you fare that any filmmaker would love to make. Armed with a compelling subject and aided by such careful craft, Jane isn’t just required viewing for fans of Goodall or animal lovers, but anyone seeking a classic in the making.” Kate Erbland, IndieWire.
Using a trove of unseen footage, director Brett Morgen 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.
