"Lamb" focuses on the relationship between Brother Michael Lamb (Liam Neeson), a teacher in a Roman Catholic-run institution for troubled boys in Ireland, and 10-year-old Owen Kane (Hugh O'Conor), the school's most unruly pupil. Dumped into the institution by his abusive mother, Owen is an incorrigible mess who smokes cigarettes, curses, wets his bed, picks fights and has epileptic seizures.Written by
I watched this film after reading the book and all I can say is "Worst film ever". The book was actually better then the film and I (and many others) would rate the book as also the worst book ever to be published.
The film seems to overlook all the detail in the book that you need in order to truly develop the characters and allow you to feel in any way pity for them. I would strongly advise against watching this movie.
