Critic Reviews for Lamb

All Critics (34) | Top Critics (13)

Ross Partridge's unsettling drama Lamb, based on Bonnie Nadzam's novel, leaves this agonizing question to linger over the action for most of the way, which isn't quite as cruel a proposition as it seems.

Top Critic

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

January 22, 2016 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

Partridge has a strong screen presence, but the potential power of his storytelling approach is negated when emotions get mushy in the third act. That's when we figure out that this film doesn't know exactly what it wants to say.

January 14, 2016 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

Though not always successful, this is a complicated film that should cause its audience to continue to think about its characters and the actions they take.

January 9, 2016 | Rating: B

"Lamb" is empathetic and untrustworthy, haunting but often unpersuasive. In the end it's hard to say what the film's point is. But it lingers in the mind.

January 8, 2016 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

In the novel, Lamb is a fantasist who uses Tommie as a blank (pure) slate on which to write a new life story. Mr. Partridge never figures out how to complicate his version and its voices, or maybe doesn't want to.
