(2015) (Documentary) (G)
- 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.
- 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.
