In Ross Partridge’s “Lamb,” a middle-aged man and a young girl form a controversial relationship.

The official synopsis for “Lamb” reads: “‘Lamb,’ based on the book by Bonnie Nadzam, traces the self-discovery of David Lamb, a narcissistic middle-aged man. In the weeks following the disintegration of his marriage and the death of his father he hopes to regain some faith in his own goodness by turning his attention to an awkward and unpopular 11-year-old girl named Tommie. Lamb is convinced that he can help her avoid a destiny of apathy and emptiness and even comes to believe that his devotion to Tommie is in her best interest. When Lamb decides to take a willing Tommie for a road trip from Chicago to the Rockies to initiate her into the vast beauty of the world, the journey shakes them in ways neither of them expects.”

“Lamb” was directed, written by and stars Ross Partridge. The cast also features Jess Weixler, Scoot McNairy, Joel Murray and young costar Oona Laurence.

The rural drama hits theaters on January 8. Check out the exclusive poster for the film above.
