HASH(0xb3331e34) out of 5 stars Provocative, Intense, and Superbly Acted Jan. 15 2016
By Sydney Leigh - Published on Amazon.com
After establishing a deeply unsettling relationship between the two main characters at the beginning of the film, LAMB'S plot builds with an unusually compelling intensity. Superb performances, gorgeous cinematography, and the fragile, provocative nature of the storyline render this drama affecting to say the least. Given the possible direction their lives might take, the wholly realistic characters into which Partridge and Laurence, a mere thirteen, transform keep the audience riveted and likely hoping for any number of outcomes...all of which would be heartbreaking.
Laurence was simply brilliant as Tommie and seems to carry this profound, complex, and hefty psychological drama with the greatest of ease. Based on the novel of the same name by Bonnie Nadzam, Partridge also wrote and directed this triumphant effort in filmmaking. 4.5/5 stars

HASH(0xb3340930) out of 5 stars Peculiar relationship is the film's dramatic hook April 17 2016
By The Movie Man - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
“Lamb” is based on an award-winning novel by Bonnie Nadzam. David Lamb (Ross Partridge) is a Chicago businessman whose marriage has recently disintegrated. While having a cigarette one afternoon, he is approached by 11-year-old Tommie (Oona Laurence) who wants to impress her more popular schoolmates by bumming a cigarette from him.

Hoping to regain some faith in his own goodness, David turns his attention to the awkward and unpopular girl. Convinced that he can help her avoid a destiny of apathy and emptiness, he takes Tommie on a road trip from Chicago to the Rockies to let her experience the beauty of the mountain wilderness. Their journey will lead to an unusual connection and change them both in significant ways.

The premise is discomfiting from the get-go. We wonder about a middle-aged man heading off to a cabin in the wilderness with a preadolescent girl, and director Partridge keeps the suspense percolating. Tommie is drawn to David because he’s the only person of any age who’s nice to her, and her parents are too high on drugs to care. We’re aware that Tommie sees in David a father surrogate, but it’s not clear what David wants. Just when you think you’ve figured out where the story is going, it takes an unexpected turn.

Special features on the widescreen DVD release include audio commentary, photo gallery, and deleted scenes.

HASH(0xb333b7d4) out of 5 stars Friend and Mentor April 19 2016
By CactusPete - Published on Amazon.com

A man who has what I would call "daughter hunger" takes an unloved girl for a week vacation at his cabin. There are hints of sexual overtones, but none of them are acted out. Not really a very happy movie. I bought the movie because I have worked with young people and am saddened by the notion that a man can't befriend a girl without society thinking the worst about the relationship. If this subject interests you, check out the movie "The Woodsman" for comparison.

HASH(0xb3331e7c) out of 5 stars A maddening, magical grown up fairy tale June 3 2016
By Tirdad Derakhshani - Published on Amazon.com
David Lamb's world is imploding.

His wife has kicked him out, forcing him to live in a cheap motel on the outskirts of town. His father, a gruff, bitter old man, has just died. And his boss (Joel Murray) has told him to take time off after finding out David has been fooling around with a coworker 20 years his junior (Jess Weixler).

Directed by Ross Partridge, who also plays the titular antihero, Lamb is a deeply disturbing, maddening, shocking, and yet also utterly magical grown-up fairy tale for the postindustrial age.

It opens in a sort of Inferno, an industrial area on the outskirts of Denver, littered with half-empty strip malls, industrial parks, battered warehouses, and crisscrossing highway on-ramps.

One day, David finds the answer to his troubles when an 11-year-old girl named Tommie (Tony Award winner Oona Laurence) asks him for a cigarette. When she tells David her friends dared her to approach him, David tells her she can get back at them by pretending he's kidnapping her.

And so he does, heaving her tiny, thin body into the front seat and taking off.

The shock takes some time to sink in: Here's this pathetic man the audience has come to pity, if not care about, and he turns out to be a child predator?

Not quite. At least not yet.

David is kind and sweet, not for a second patronizing, as he asks her to give him directions to her home. It dawns on the viewer he may see this child as a potential friend. Surely not.

Laurence is the model of restraint and self-assurance as Tommie, a neglected kid with absentee parents who would rather watch TV than take care of her.

David shows up again the next day and the day after as the mismatched pair develop a sort of friendship.

It's a charming, strange, transgressive, undefinable friendship, and we keep expecting catastrophe to strike: Surely, he's grooming her?

Partridge portrays David with immaculate timing and meticulous attention to detail. We feel for the character's pain, but never quite trust him.

Then things get downright strange when David takes Tommie for a weeklong stay at his dad's cabin in rural Wyoming. The car ride intensifies their bond, as does their stay in an American pastoral Paradiso, the countryside David somehow believes will wash him of his pain - or his sins.

HASH(0xb334bcf0) out of 5 stars Compelled to keep watching the same way you don't want to look at a horrible car accident June 18 2016
By Geri - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
This is a very difficult movie to watch because your mind keeps jumping ahead to what might happen next. Those thoughts keep you in an almost constant state of dread and anxiety even while you are compelled to keep watching. Compelled to keep watching the same way you don't want to look at a horrible car accident and yet your eyes still find their way to the twisted metal, busted glass - looking inspite of yourself for broken bodies. I didn't know anything about this movie other than the 2 sentence blurb Amazon gives in the description. I thought LAMB was going to be the little girl, not the man. If I'd known in advance there was even a hint of pedophilia in it, I wouldn't have watched it. Aside from the subject matter, the acting was well done. However, it's impossible to dismiss the definite creep factor of Gary Lamb. The way he manipulates the girl into coming with him and doing what he wants was kind of like watching a DIY Pedophile how to video. Gary is a middle aged man, but he is emotionally stunted. He is living in a small hotel room after his never seen wife kicks him out. He has an ongoing sexual relationship with a younger woman at work but there is nothing touching, tender or loving about it. He recognizes the young girls vulnerability the moment he first sees her wearing her mom's high heels being coerced into a dare by her friends. It doesn't take him long to hatch his plan & talk her into coming with him. There were times when I thought he was going to abuse her, there were times when I thought he was going to kill her, and there were times when I thought he was going to kill himself and leave her to pick up the pieces. He eventually takes her back somewhere near her home. He gives her instructions on what to say to her mom about her running away & what to say to a nearby security guard about getting help to find her mom. And then he abandons her crying and running after him on the side of a busy road. He thinks he did her a favor by taking her on a road trip to see the mountains, river and green fields he remembers from his own childhood. I found myself hoping she'd end up telling what really happened to her mom & the police so they'd go after him for kidnapping. I also found myself wondering what kind of man that little girl would grow up looking for in a boyfriend/husband.
