5.0 out of 5 stars An important movie not to be missed... August 2, 2004
"Peaceable Kingdom" is at times sad, shocking, and depressing... but it is ultimately uplifting and inspiring. Who knew all these terrible things were happening to farm animals? We must be their voice, and work to change how they are treated. The most effective way, of course, is to adopt a vegan diet.

It is important to see farm animals for what they really are -- sentient beings who can feel physical pain and who can suffer psycologically from intense confinement (not to mention fear). I have been to Farm Sanctuary's CA shelter, both as a visitor and as an intern, and it helps to see animals like pigs or cows or turkeys being cared for so lovingly after enduring various cruelties at the hands of humans. You discover that, just like our dogs and cats, each individual has his or her own personality, likes and dislikes (such as certain sleeping places or favorite foods), and generally likes to interact with people. "Peaceable Kingdom" conveys this very well, I think.

I have seen this movie 3 times so far, and it makes me laugh and cry every time. I cannot recommend it enough.

5.0 out of 5 stars Life changing October 8, 2004
This film WILL change your life. It is the most powerful movie I have viewed -- ever. You will never shop in a grocery store or order food in a restaurant again without thinking about aspects of this film. Either from a humanitarian or emotional conviction or from a health perspective, it will change your life. Do we really *want* to eat and mistreat our friends? Those gentle farm animals that we grew to love as children, on our farms and ranches, in our books and childhood movies? Do we really *need* to eat our friends? Only to polute our bodies with antibiotics and diseases that we manifest to these poor creatures? This film gives much food for thought. Please, please do yourself a favor and view this film. And then make sure everyone you know views it next.

5.0 out of 5 stars eye opening and life changing June 28, 2005
It was difficult for me to sit through parts of this film, but I forced myself to watch all of it, and it changed my life.

It forced me to think about personal responsibility in our everyday choices. I never realized the horrors of factory farming and the sick extent to which animals are exploited. Once you know, you can't pretend everything is ok.

This is a very important film.

5.0 out of 5 stars Most Important Film About Farm Animals Yet! June 29, 2004
By A Customer
Peaceable Kingdom is a powerful documentary about America's dirtiest secret - Factory Farming. This wonderful, moving film will make you laugh, cry and re-think your world. Highly recommended. It would be an excellent tool for teachers.

This film might change your life. The main subject of the film is about the Farm Santuary in Watkins Glen, NY and the inhabitants of the sanctuary. As Americans, we know very little of the lives of the creatures that we are most involved with - the ones we eat.
Peaceable Kingdom is not a film filled with despair and pain. It is instead filled with love and hope for a better world - A world that we get a glimpse of in this 77 minute documentary. A world that is easy to believe can become a reality someday.
Peaceable Kingdom provides the viewer with a roadmap to that world.
Peaceable Kingom in its finest moments will make you laugh and cry at the same time.
And if you aloow it to will give you pause and question some of the barbaric things that we do to these gentle souls that end up on our plates - and on our feet.
I found this film to be inspiring and beautiful - A wonderful escape full of real possibility that one day we may leave behind our brutal ways.
This is a film of healing and hope and I give it my highest recommendation and that is to buy it and share it with everyone you know!

5.0 out of 5 stars THE TRUTH WILL SET YOU FREE June 14, 2007
More and more people are finally waking up to the root of our problems: our brutal treatment of our brothers and sisters in life - known as the animals. I have been fortunate in having given up "meat"-eating over a quarter century ago. In those days - people would almost invariably say -"don't be preachy" when anyone would claim that the endless slaughter (going on every second of our lives - a perpetual ring of pain ensconsing our lives and the earth) and vicious oppression of animals was the root cause of warfare - the cause of most of our health problems as well. This film is a great remedy for them - and a counterweight to all the phoney scientistic propaganda heaped out on the public for years claiming that "nutritionally" we need to eat the poisoned flesh of murdered animals to survive - nothing could be more opposed to the truth. The work that the people in this film are doing - providing sanctuary - is among the most important on the planet. If humanity could give up imprisoning and killing animals by proxy - we might be able to give up doing that sort of stuff to each other. The film should be shown in every elementary school in the world.
A great document - a must see for all!

5.0 out of 5 stars Every caring person should watch this movie July 9, 2005
Peaceable Kingdom is a thoughtful, balanced documentary which provides a truthful look at the plight of animals on factory farms today. Their suffering is not just at the time of slaughter, but every day of their lives. The film makers provide a factual movie which educates but does not judge people who eat meat. Meat eaters do add to the demand which keeps these factory farms in business, but the average person does not know about the horrific suffering experienced by farm animals throughout their lives. The good news is that there are some wonderful people, featured in this movie, who are working to help these animals. I think it is important for everyone to watch this movie. It is sad, but watching it will change your life for the better.
