"I doubt any film in 2022 will end on a more shocking or life-changing note." - Charlotte O'Sullivan, London Evening Standard

"An immersive and impassioned documentary from one of Britain's most formidable filmmakers." - Beth Webb, Empire Magazine

In this raw and immersive documentary, acclaimed director Andrea Arnold (FISH TANK, RED ROAD) chronicles four years in the life of Luma, a dairy cow in England. Equal parts gripping and meditative, COW ambitiously invites the viewer to lose themselves in the rhythms and routines of Luma's life while also, inevitably, considering their own relationship with all creatures great and small. Nearly wordless, decidedly visceral, and deeply sensory, COW is an honest and uncompromising journey. (RF)
