About the Film
The mischievous monkey Curious George made his first appearance more than 75 years ago and has been entertaining readers young and old ever since. If not for a pair of handmade bicycles, however, the beloved children’s book character might never have made it out of Nazi-occupied Europe. Brought to life with whimsical animation, Monkey Business celebrates the power of storytelling as it recounts how refugee couple Hans and Margret Rey created an enduring classic.
