Storyline

Peaceable Kingdom: The Journey Home explores the powerful struggle of conscience experienced by several people from traditional farming backgrounds who come to question the basic assumptions of their way of life. A riveting story of transformation and healing, the documentary portrays the farmers' sometimes amazing connections with the animals under their care, while also providing insight into the complex web of social, psychological and economic forces that have led to their inner conflict. Interwoven with the farmers' stories is the dramatic animal rescue work of a newly-trained humane police officer whose sense of justice puts her at odds with the law she is charged to uphold. With strikingly honest interviews and rare footage demonstrating the emotional lives and intense family bonds of animals most often viewed as living commodities, this groundbreaking documentary shatters stereotypical notions of farmers, farm life, and perhaps most surprisingly, farm animals themselves.

Amazing movie!
28 January 2010 | by ramona75See all my reviews

This is by far the best documentary that I have ever seen! (And I watch documentaries all the time). It's really really well done (everything is good: the camera work, the music, etc) and it's very thoughtful and thought- provoking. I've talked to numerous people and they've all liked it. In fact, I've never met anyone who didn't like it. People with very different diets (vegetarians, vegans, omnivores, hard-core meat eaters, etc) really like it, and people with very different personalities. I've showed it to people who don't usually watch documentaries and they have really liked it too, saying that it was engaging and a great conversation starter. I would highly recommend this movie to everyone.
