Even if it weren't being released by that distributor, just off this trailer Lamb would appear to hit A24 Bingo. It's got the Instagram-ready aesthetics, the unsettling vibes, and great use of music. The film premiered at Cannes in July, where it won an award for originality.
Noomi Rapace (Prometheus) stars as María, who runs a farm with her partner Ingvar (Hilmir Snaer Gudnason). One day a sheep gives birth to a mutant lamb with human features. They raise it as their own child, but of course their little family won't be able to stay together peacefully.
Co-writer/director Validmar Jóhannsson makes his feature debut, and it looks miles away from his previous visual effects work on blockbusters like Rogue One and The Tomorrow War.
Lamb will open in limited release on October 8.
