Gardein Makes Cameo in New Film Manchester by the Sea
I’ve already heard great things about Manchester by the Sea, a new film directed by Kenneth Lonergan starring Michelle Williams and long-time vegan Casey Affleck, the plot of which “follows an uncle [Affleck] who has to look after his teenage nephew after the boy’s father dies.” However, I just recently learned that vegan brand Gardein makes a special appearance in the film as well!
As People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) notes:
“During a key scene, the nephew (played by Lucas Hedges) opens a freezer, and a frozen chicken falls out. This sparks a breakdown of emotion, as the carcass reminds him of his dead father. It’s in this scene that you clearly see that the top freezer shelf is filled with Gardein products.”
The film has received overwhelmingly positive reviews, and as PETA points out, the cameo is definitely “the (vegan) icing on the cake.” You can watch the trailer for the film below:
