The premise of the 2011 documentary "Veducated" in which Marisa Miller Wolf documents three New Yorkers as they adopt a Vegan lifestyle for six weeks makes for a fascinating film. The three main characters and Marisa are very likeable. This makes it easier to relate to Tesla, Brian and Ellen as they learn about the food they eating and change their relationship with food. Each of them faces different challenges; Brian is single, Ellen is a single mum and Tesla lives at home in confirmed carnivore household.
It also provides a small glimpse into the American agriculture system and it interesting to see the Urbanites as they are introduced to Vegan food via mostly processed Vegan food. Did you know that chocolate chip “Teddy Grahams” is Vegan? No? Neither did I. Perhaps my main criticism of the film is that it promotes all vegan food as healthy. This includes all processed foods that are vegan friendly. This can be forgiven somewhat given the date of production and perhaps even the location.
If you are looking for educational, funny and sometimes positively emotional film about switching to Veganism then you will like this. If you are already on plant based diet and or looking for information on healthy eating you won't get much new information from this. Nevertheless, it still makes for a fun film to watch.
