If cinema is a machine that generates empathy, as Roger Ebert said, this is evidence of that. There are few words in this documentary by Andrea Arnold (American Honey, Big Little Lies), her first foray into the genre, but they’re not really necessary. We follow the life of cow Luma in a mechanised farm environment, since her early calf-hood to the end of her life. Images of animal treatment that may be considered sensitive.
