From the guy who made "Man on Wire". Excellent documentary.

For those that don't know Nim is about a baby chimp that is raised as a human and taught sign language to see how it develops communication skills. I vaguely remember hearing something about this in the 90's. Like Wire, it is a real life story that feels like something imagined for a movie.

Great flick. Double feature it with the new planet of the apes.

Exactly what I was thinking while watching it. Amazing how closely it mirrors Nim. To the point where I wonder how much the script writers knew about the case.

Still wondering about the gender stuff in the ranks there, given that it looked like we went 29 for 29 in the male department. The (two!) big reveal(s) surprised me again, which I enjoyed.
