Lamb Review - AVClub

AVClub: Oona Laurence has been acting in movies, on TV, and on the stage since she was in single digits, even winning a Tony at age 10 for playing the title role in the musical Matilda. But she has a naturalness on camera that’s rare for any actor—let alone for one who’s essentially grown up in the business. Laurence has been memorable in small parts, in films like I Smile Back and Southpaw, and in writer-director Ross Partridge’s Lamb, she easily handles a difficult role, capturing the intelligence and immaturity of a young girl who impulsively sets off on an adventure and then realizes she’s strayed way too far from home. Throughout Lamb, Laurence makes sure that every one of the character’s bad choices makes sense. That’s what makes the movie so sad.

The story is too old to be commented.
