Funny, effective, simply brilliant
22 March 2017 | by mayo-14485See all my reviews

People feel judged before a vegan even opens their mouth's. Guilt and annoyance are very common associations with the vegan movement. Here, Simon Amstell, wipes that slate clean. We are all equally mocked and the absurdity creates equality so that we can all relax and watch a simultaneously informative, moving and utterly hilarious film. Whatever you eat you are, without a doubt, in for a treat. It's truly remarkable.
