Movie Info

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 is an undeniable visual feast for the senses, and a celebration of atmospheric storytelling that may have sacrificed chunks of dialogue but never lost sight on its desired impact.

  • Szumowska fills her film with turbulence, from the physical maelstrom of a waterfall seen at the start of the film to the often macabre visions experienced by Selah...
