This year's "Earth Day" movie from Disneynature is "Monkey Kingdom," throwing a spotlight on a newborn monkey and its mother. Struggling to survive within the competitive social hierarchy of the Temple Troop, a dynamic group of monkeys who live in ancient ruins in the jungles of South Asia, they're joined by a rich cast of forest characters. Life is grand, food is plentiful, and safety is assured -- but only if you're lucky enough to be born on the higher rungs of the Troop's social ladder. But this young mother and her infant find themselves in a constant state of hunger and peril from higher-ranking monkeys. It'll take a lot of ingenuity, hard work, and a little luck to change their place in the world.
