Amazing and inspiring documentary
29 October 2013 | by gina-tomaselliSee all my reviews

I will keep this short. I'll be blunt - I was very hesitant at first about watching this film, as I did not want to see yet another depressing movie about factory farming. This was totally different. Instead of feeling depressed, I left feeling inspired emotionally and intellectually. I don't think anything like this has been done before -- it is a must see for vegetarians and omnivores, alike and anyone interested in philosophy, social justice, nutrition, medicine, and just about anything else! It is heartfelt, poignant, even funny at points, raw, and both sad and uplifting. I went home and immediately ordered 3 DVD copies. See it today - you won't regret it.
