Taken from his mother days after birth, raised by a succession of human hosts and taught sign language, chimpanzee Nim’s life was one long experiment. In exploring Nim’s life, this film — from the Oscar-winning team behind Man on Wire — becomes “an endlessly fascinating, moving documentary… [that] shows the human capacity for cruelty and narcissism as well as compassion and selflessness.” (A.V. Club)
