Director Michael Apted scores a winner with "Gorillas in the Mist". He is famous for such films as "Coal Miners Daughter" and "Gorky Park", but this may be his best work. The cinematography of the African jungle gorilla's is stunning. Sigourney Weaver is outstanding in a true story of anthropologist Dian Fossey travels to study the gorilla's in their native habitat. "Gorillas in the Mist" is fascinating from beginning to end. A truly fine film for the entire family!
