QUICK TAKE:
Documentary: A low-ranking mother toque macaque must contend with the various challenges of raising a young son in the jungles of Sri Lanka.
PLOT:
In the jungles of Sri Lanka, Maya is one of several low-ranking toque macaques ruled over by Raja and his trio of sisterly queens. Those monkeys and others in the higher ranks get to feed atop fruitful fig trees and be protected from the elements by a large pile of boulders known as Castle Rock. But not Maya who must scrounge and fend for herself to survive. When Maya ends up having a young son, Kip, by an outsider monkey, Kumar, she must raise her baby without the help of others, at least initially.

When an outside troop of monkeys invades and takes over Castle Rock, Maya's previous resourcefulness comes in handy, especially when she, Kumar and others head back to reclaim their home.

WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
It's a good bet a fair number of younger ones will, especially if they've liked the past offerings by Disneynature, including "Chimpanzee."
WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: G
For not containing material to warrant a higher rating.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
