Movie Info

How much do you know about the food that's on your plate? Based on the bestselling book by Jonathan Safran Foer and narrated by co-producer Natalie Portman, Eating Animals is an urgent, eye-opening look at the environmental, economic, and public health consequences of factory farming. Tracing the history of food production in the United States, the film charts how farming has gone from local and sustainable to a corporate Frankenstein monster that offers cheap eggs, meat, and dairy at a steep cost: the exploitation of animals; the risky use of antibiotics and hormones; and the pollution of our air, soil, and water. Spotlighting farmers who have pushed backed against industrial agriculture with more humane practices, Eating Animals offers attainable, commonsense solutions to a growing crisis while making the case that ethical farming is not only an animal rights issue but one that affects every aspect of our lives.

[A] hard-hitting documentary.

March 11, 2020 | Full Review…

It's arresting material, delivered with passion. But, as a documentary, it's sometimes scattershot and random, and ultimately preaching, one suspects, to the choir.

June 7, 2019 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Well meaning politically, but positively sucks as a movie.

June 7, 2019 | Rating: 1/5 | Full Review…

It's a film that tells you what you already knew - and then made a conscious or unconscious decision to forget, if you are a meat-eater.

June 6, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Hold on, fellow meat eaters! Director Christopher Quinn's film isn't the blood-spattered, viral footage-laced, sermonizing moral lecture you might think it will be.

July 16, 2018 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…

If "Eating Animals" gets you to think twice about that prepackaged beef or frozen chicken, it will have done its job.
