At the far ends of the earth she found a reason to live, and a cause to fight for.
Nominated for five Academy Awards®, Gorillas in the Mist is the inspiring true story of young anthropologist Dian Fossey (Sigourney Weaver) who travels to Africa to study rare mountain gorillas. As her interest quickly grows into an unwavering passion, not even her lover (Bryan Brown) can tear her away – or stop her from risking her life to protect the gorillas from poachers and animal traders. Desperate to save her "family" from extinction, Fossey searches for justice in this unforgettable tale of one woman’s incredible courage.
"'Gorillas in the Mist' has everything you could ask for in an adventure film." - Kevin Thomas, Los Angeles Times
