In the movie Raw, everyone in Justine’s family is a vet. And a vegetarian. At sixteen she’s a brilliant student starting out at veterinary school where she experiences a decadent, merciless and dangerously seductive world.
Desperate to fit in, she strays from her family principles and eats raw meat for the first time. Justine will soon face the terrible and unexpected consequences as her true self begins to emerge.
The movie Raw cost about $5 million to produce and took in just over $500,000 in the United States.
At a screening at Gothenburg Film Festival, several attendees fainted and vomited. Over 30 people left the cinema prematurely and the projectionist had to take a break in the middle of the movie due to all the turmoil.
