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.

All Critics (16) | Top Critics (10)

The message is clear, and memorably rendered: Care about where your meat comes from, because then you might eat less of it, feel better when you do eat it, and cause a little less suffering in the world.

Though not as graphically powerful as other documentaries on similar subjects... the emphasis on the disastrous global impact of these practices is more disturbing.

An annoyingly blinkered piece of agitprop-but an effective one, too.

"Eating Animals," at its core, poses two hard questions, the latter of which might seem intractable: "How did we get here?" and "How do we go somewhere else?"

As eye-opening as it is stomach-turning, whether you're familiar with this topic or not.

June 15, 2018 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

A movie like "Eating Animals," by making you think twice about what you're taking a bite of, has stood its ground and done its job.
