Monkey Kingdom documentary review: growing up in the jungle

21 January 2016 6:16 AM, PST | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

Simplistic, but a charming and child-friendly introduction to our cousins in the wild that no zoo could provide, with a monkey heroine whom kids will cheer. I’m “biast” (pro): monkeys!

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

Disneynature, the Mouse’s nature-documentary arm, continues its quest to introduce kids to our cousins in the wild with Monkey Kingdom, a charming if simplistic film that gets us up close to animals in their own environment in a way that not even the most sophisticated zoo could ever achieve. In the Sri Lankan jungle lives “Maya,” a macaque monkey born at the bottom of her troop’s social hierarchy, where she is subject to such injustices as being bullied by her higher-ranking neighbors — even the babies! — and missing out on all the best food treats — tasty mushrooms! — which are invariably gone by »
