In this 2015 SXSW Festival stunner, a man meets a young girl in a parking lot and he attempts to help her avoid a bleak destiny by initiating her into the beauty of the outside world. The journey shakes them in ways neither expects.
LAMB, based on the novel by Bonnie Nadzam, traces the self-discovery of David Lamb in the weeks following the disintegration of his marriage and the death of his father.
Hoping to regain some faith in his own goodness, he turns his attention to Tommie, an awkward and unpopular eleven-year-old girl. Lamb is convinced that he can help her avoid a destiny of apathy and emptiness,and takes Tommie for a road trip from Chicago to the Rockies, planning to initiate her into the beauty of the mountain wilderness. The journey shakes them in ways neither expects.

“Intensely provocative.” – IndieWire
“Lamb proves itself a deeply intriguing psychological drama that should inspire much spirited debate.” – Frank Scheck, Hollywood Reporter
