LAMB (15)

Noomi Rapace toting a shotgun in LAMB

An audacious, genre-defying mix of horror and folklore, LAMB is the debut feature from Icelandic writer-director Valdimar Jóhannsson, a strikingly original new voice in independent cinema.

Co-written by academy-nominated author Sjón (Dancer in the Dark), this darkly compelling fable tells the story of a couple living alone on a remote farm, who find their quiet existence shaken by the astonishing discovery of a mysterious newborn amongst their sheep. They decide to raise the child as their own, but soon face the consequences of defying the will of nature.

Winner of the Prize of Originality award at the 2021 Cannes Film Festival, and featuring a gripping, career-best performance from Noomi Rapace (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo), this disturbing and uniquely unsettling cinematic experience is truly unlike anything you’ve seen before.
