The official trailer and poster are here for the award-winning thriller The Other Lamb which made waves at the 2019 Toronto International Film Festival last year.
From the Polish award-winning director Malgorzata Szumowska and the producer of Nightcrawler, and starring Raffey Cassidy, Michiel Huisman, and Denise Gough, the film explores the horrors of toxic masculinity and the abuse of power through the eyes of a teenage girl, who is beginning to question everything about her existence.
“For her entire life, the cult she was born into has been all that teenage Selah (Raffey Cassidy) has known. Along with a band of similarly cloistered young women she lives seemingly unstuck in time, cut off from modern society in a remote forest commune presided over by a man called Shepherd (Michiel Huisman), a controlling, messiah-like figure with a frightening dark side. But when her insular world is rocked by a series of nightmarish visions and disturbing revelations, Selah begins to question everything about her existence—including her allegiance to the increasingly dangerous Shepherd. Awash in images of primal, dreamlike dread, this provocative fable is a haunting vision of adolescent awakening and revolt.”
The Other Lamb will open on Friday, April 3rd exclusively at the IFC Center in New York, and in Los Angeles with rollout to select cities. The film will be available on demand and digital platforms, from IFC Midnight.
