Do you ever wonder if a guy leading a cult of exclusively women devoted to worshipping him doesn’t have the best interests of his followers at heart? We are getting pretty skeptical of the man in The Other Lamb, a thriller about a closed-off sect that lives in the woods to please and glorify its leader, played by Michiel Huisman. The most prized, purest member of the collective is Selah (Raffey Cassidy), but an impending break into puberty is about to change her vaunted status with dear leader, and the darker parts of her subservient life will soon unveil themselves to her. Directed by Małgorzata Szumowska from a script by Catherine S. McMullen, The Other Lamb will open at the IFC Centers in New York and Los Angeles on April 3 before rolling out in more theaters.
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.
