Natalie Portman: 'Chimpanzee' Screening with Jane Goodall!

Natalie Portman and Dave Matthews sandwich in Jane Goodall at a screening of Chimpanzee on Saturday (April 14) at the Crosby Street Hotel in NYC.

Law & Order: SVU star Mariska Hargitay also came out for the Disneynature and The Cinema Society-hosted event.

Synopsis for the documentary, which hits theaters this Friday (April 20): A new True Life Adventure introducing an adorable baby chimp named Oscar and his entertaining approach to life in a remarkable story of family bonds and individual triumph. Oscar’s playful curiosity and zest for discovery showcase the intelligence and ingenuity of some of the most extraordinary personalities in the animal kingdom.

Working together, Oscar’s chimpanzee family – including his mom and the group’s savvy leader – navigates the complex territory of the forest. The world is a playground for little Oscar and his fellow young chimps, who’d rather make mayhem than join their parents for an afternoon nap. But when Oscar’s family is confronted by a rival band of chimps, he is left to fend for himself until a surprising ally steps in and changes his life forever.
