Sigourney Weaver stars in the true story of Dian Fossey, an American anthropologist who made it her life's mission to save the mountain gorillas of Rwanda from extinction. Weaver earned a deserved Oscar nomination as the passionate yet perhaps foolhardy Fossey while exceptional work from make up legend Rick Baker makes it hard to distinguish her animatronic co-stars from the real thing. Director Michael Apted brings environment and atmosphere together to create a tender and often suspenseful, but ultimately moving whole.
