About the Movie

Based on the novel by Bonnie Nadzam, Lamb 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 from a broken home. 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.

Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: In the novel, Lamb is a fantasist who uses Tommie as a blank (pure) slate on which to write a new life story. Mr. Partridge never figures out how to complicate his version and its voices, or maybe doesn't want to. – Manohla Dargis, New York Times, Jan 7, 2016

Fresh: Beautiful and troubling. – Justin Chang, Variety, Dec 21, 2015

Fresh: Feeling creeped out is unavoidable, but it's an inquisitive unsettling born of a faith that people are inherently complicated, worthy of love, capable of good and yet all too often mired in well-meaning intentions that hurt more than help. – Robert Abele, Los Angeles Times, Jan 7, 2016

Fresh: Lamb proves itself a deeply intriguing psychological drama that should inspire much spirited debate. – Frank Scheck, Hollywood Reporter, Dec 21, 2015

Complex, powerful and original

I was lucky to catch this in the theater. Coming out of the theater, we were so excited to talk to each other about our interpretations of it. You really don’t know how it will end till you get there, and the performances of the two leads are astonishing.

Mysterious movie

Great little actress. It’s an adventure to watch her.


A great commentary of how this world sets certain guidelines and unspoken rules around how old you should be, what gender you are, and who you are allowed to love because of that: we are all children/we are all wandering & lost lambs….
