Written and Directed by Ross Partridge.
When a man meets a young girl in a parking lot he attempts to help her avoid a bleak destiny by initiating her into the beauty of the outside world. The journey shakes them in ways neither expects.
Uncomfortable platonic tension and inappropriate awkwardness loom over virtually every scene in Lamb. Some will outright write the movie off based on its subject material alone, but anyone who gives it a chance will find themselves rewarded with what will wind up as one of the most complex and emotional works of the year.

Perhaps it’s an interim calm before the Sundance and Phase Two Awards storm.

It’s set for a theatrical and VOD release over the next few days, and today we have an exclusive clip.

Strangers With Cabins : Partridge’s Uncomfortable Sophomore Film
Returning behind the camera for the first time since his 2000 debut indie film Interstate 84, actor Ross Partridge reaches uncomfortable and unpredictable heights with Lamb, an adaptation of a novel by Bonnie Nadzam. Exploring a socially inappropriate relationship between a middle aged man and a pre-teen female barely on the horizon of adolescence, Ross reaches a perfect emotional pitch in-between punctuations of queasy discomfort. With impressive finesse, Partridge, who adapted the screenplay, maintains the sense of dense characterization sometimes lost in cinematic translations dealing with material as fragile as this.
Having just buried his father and in the midst of a divorce, Chicago businessman David Lamb (Partridge) finds himself adrift in an increasing tangle of little white lies and untruths that have forced him into a stagnant personal ennui. He’s having a tepid affair with co-worker, Linny (Jess Weixler), though »
