From The Other Lamb Press Release
IFC Midnight is proud to share the official trailer and poster for award-winning Polish director Ma?gorzata Szumowska’s English language debut THE OTHER LAMB starring Raffey Cassidy, Michiel Huisman and Denise Gough. The mesmerizing thriller made a powerful splash at the 2019 Toronto International Film Festival, and went on to play notable festivals around the world including BFI’s London Film Festival and Fantastic Fest. Offering a provocative fable of women at the mercy of a charismatic cult leader, Szumowska explores the horrors of toxic masculinity and abuse of power through the eyes of teenage Selah, who is starting to question everything about her existence.
SYNOPSIS – 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 opens Friday, April 3. You can check it out at the IFC Center in New York. It will also be shown in Los Angeles an other select cities. You can find it on demand and on digital platforms that same day.
This looks great! It looks like it’s getting solid reviews, too. I’m definitely looking forward to checking it out. I’m a big fan of the IFC Midnight catalog, and this looks like it will slot in nicely.
