In this exclusive clip from Ross Partridge’s “Lamb,” the relationship between David Lamb and the young Tommie seems serene until a sudden interruption. The film enjoyed its world premiere at the SXSW Film Festival, where it was a festival favorite. The cast includes Oona Laurence, Ross Partridge, Scoot McNairy and Jess Weixler.
The official film synopsis 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.”
The film hits theaters January 8 and iTunes/VOD January 12. Watch the exclusive clip above.
