SYNOPSIS: LIMITED TICKETS are available at UPSTATE FILMS in RHINEBECK for the Rhinebeck screening.
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 yet adventurous eleven-year-old girl played beautifully by rising young star Oona Laurence. Lamb is convinced that he can help Tommie avoid a destiny of apathy and emptiness, and takes her for a road trip from Chicago to the Rockies, planning to initiate her into the beauty of the mountain wilderness. Never quite certain where Lamb is going, the film maintains a slow-burning intensity as the unfolding circumstances threaten to veer into very disturbing territory. But Lamb is not Lolita and Ross Partridge masterfully directs and stars in what is truly a provocative psychological drama of two lonely strangers, one a grown man, the other a mere child, who use one another to find direction and purpose in their lives.
