The film stars Swedish actress Noomi Rapace, who also co-produced the film with famed Hungarian auteur Bella Tarr. Distributed by A24. (Iceland/Sweden/Poland, 2021, 106m.)

Lamb is a disturbing experience but also a highly original take on the anxieties of being a parent, a tale in which nature plus nurture yields a nightmare.” -David Rooney, Hollywood Reporter
