A look at the life of Alfred Kinsey (Neeson), a pioneer in the area of human sexuality research, whose 1948 publication "Sexual Behavior in the Human Male" was one of the first recorded works that saw science address sexual behavior.
The scene in which Diane orchestrated the mock hanging of a poacher and another where she burned poachers' huts are fictitious. See more »
Fourth and fifth digits webbed. I know you.
Nice ring, Van Vecten. Zoo sale profits?
Miss Fossey, where did you see your first wild animal? In a zoo, wasn't it?
You like this ring? You wanna keep the hand it's on?
If I see or hear or smell you anywhere near my gorillas you'll be writing with your other hand, and I'll have an ashtray.

very fine movie "based on" the life of Primate expert Dian Fossey
this movie is based on the life of Dian Fossey and her work with the gorillas in a remote part of Africa."based on" usually means that some of the content is true and parts of it are fictionalized for dramatic effect.for sure Dian Fossey did work with gorillas in Africa and was instrumental in the increase of their population.some of the details may have been altered,but the gist of the story is true.i thought it was a very entertaining,touching and heartbreaking story.i think Sigourney weaver did a great job as Dian Fossey.she really brought some passion to the character.the movie was also thought provoking and i actually became angry more than a few times about some of the incidents that occurred.i find it rare to become so actively involved with a movie nowadays.for me "Gorillas in the Mist" is at a strong 8/10
