Storyline

Vegucated is a guerrilla-style documentary that follows three meat- and cheese-loving New Yorkers who agree to adopt a vegan diet for six weeks and learn what it's all about. They have no idea that so much more than steak is at stake and that the planet's fate may fall on their plates. Lured by tales of weight lost and health regained, they begin to uncover hidden sides of animal agriculture that make them wonder whether solutions offered in films like Food, Inc. go far enough. Before long, they find themselves risking everything to expose an industry they supported just weeks before. But can their convictions carry them through when times get tough? What about on family vacations fraught with skeptical step-dads, carnivorous cousins, and breakfast buffets? Part sociological experiment and part adventure comedy, Vegucated showcases the rapid and at times comedic evolution of three people who are trying their darnedest to change in a culture that seems dead set against it. Written by Marisa Miller Wolfson

Good film for non-vegans & everybody who would like to learn about why veganism is 100% NECESSARY
20 September 2017 | by danielgrabowySee all my reviews

At first I thought it was kind of cringy, the first couple of minutes just felt weird and I almost stopped watching. But after 10- 15 minutes the film starts to get more analytical, scientific and gets into more detail. That's when it gets really interesting. The information is very digestible, that's why I think this film is one of the best for people who don't know anything about this topic yet. As I am a bit more knowledgeable, I did not learn too much new stuff, but the images of how animals are being treated made me break down and cry my eyes out. Good reminder, as I tend to forget just how bad animals are being treated.

The film is more about the ethical parts of being vegan and - though it touches on them - less about the environmental and personal- health related parts.

If you have not watched any films on veganism or animal-products, I definitely recommend watching this film. If you do know all the basics you can easily skip this one.
