Two lost souls form an unlikely bond in the provocative drama LAMB, available on DVD April 19, 2016, from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment. Written and directed by Ross Partridge from Secret in Their Eyes and based on the award-winning novel by Bonnie Nadzam, this emotionally-charged film stars Partridge as David Lamb, a man struggling with the disintegration of his marriage and death of his father. David finds an unexpected connection with an awkward and unpopular 11-year-old girl named Tommie, played by Oona Laurence (Southpaw). Co-starring Jess Weixler (TV’s “The Good Wife”), Joel Murray (TV’s “Mad Men”) and Scoot McNairy (Argo), this critically acclaimed film, released by The Orchard theatrically, digitally, and on demand earlier this year, was an Official Selection at the 2015 South by Southwest Film Festival and winner of the 2015 Woodstock Film Festival Ultra Indie Award for Best Film. It debuts on DVD and digital with bonus features that include feature commentary with Ross Partridge and Oona Laurence, deleted scenes, Lamb: Landscapes Video and a photo gallery.

These two lost and lonely individuals set out on a journey that will change them in unexpected ways.
