"Part sociological experiment and part adventure comedy, Vegucated follows three meat- and cheese-loving New Yorkers who agree to adopt a vegan diet for six weeks. Lured by tales of weight lost and health regained, they begin to uncover the hidden sides of animal agriculture that make them wonder whether solutions offered in films like Food, Inc. go far enough. This entertaining documentary showcases the rapid and at times comedic evolution of three people who discover they can change the world one bite at a time." Watch the trailer here, on the Official Vegucated website.
Forks Over Knives*
"Forks Over Knives examines the profound claim that most, if not all, of the degenerative diseases that afflict us can be controlled, or even reversed, by rejecting our present menu of animal-based and processed foods. The major storyline in the film traces the personal journeys of a pair of pioneering yet under-appreciated researchers, Dr. T. Colin Campbell and Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn."

I've watched nearly all of these and I definitely agree that they're each a must-see. They really changed the way I thought about food.
Even if someone who watches these doesn't want to give up meat or go completely vegan, I think each of these is still really helpful in getting people to eat healthier and make more conscious food and lifestyle choices.
