Storyline

Suffering from the loss of his only child, Stanley has secluded himself to a dark and lonely place. Sullen and without hope, he continues to hide from and neglect those he loves despite their attempts to reach out to him. In what seems to be the final days of their already strained marriage, his wife Lisa is presented with a strange gift; an old oil lamp from a far off land. Along with the lamp comes a mysterious messenger and and a question that causes them to search the depths of their hearts for what's truly important in life... If you could have anything you wanted, what would YOU ask for? Written by Joe Jestus

User Reviews

Surprisingly heartfelt and satisfying.
12 January 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw the IMDb rating for this picture (3.9!), and almost decided not to watch the film. Thankfully, it didn't stop me. This was a pleasant surprise.

The Lamp starts out pretty slow. You have the oft-used "funeral" beginning and a family grieving, fighting, struggling to re-enter life. I was getting a little weary.

However, the story took some surprising and satisfying twists. By the end, I was smiling and pleased with the movie. You won't finish it in a bad mood.

8.5 out of 10 stars.
