About this movie

Based on the novel by Bonnie Nadzam, Lamb traces the self-discovery of David Lamb in the weeks following the disintegration of his marriage and the death of his father. Hoping to regain some faith in his own goodness, he turns his attention to Tommie, an awkward and unpopular eleven-year-old girl from a broken home. Lamb is convinced that he can help her avoid a destiny of apathy and emptiness, and takes Tommie for a road trip from Chicago to the Rockies, planning to initiate her into the beauty of the mountain wilderness. The journey shakes them in ways neither expects.

This is the third derivative of unloving; David at pre-adolescence, David in marriage, David in extramarital relationship, David in manic escape with unknown eleven year old girl. Is David broken? Clearly to the third degree, three times removed. However, everything moves in David’s world at his whim and on his terms: David-esque to biblical proportions. But this David hasn’t slain anyone or anything, short of his own self-destruction and possibly tempting his own death. What do we learn from this? Don’t get caught while acting recklessly? Do get caught while acting aimlessly? It’s interesting that David veered “right-sidedly”, so to speak, from “Lolita”, but why, if he is demonstrating the depths of brokenness? Why hold back? Let the damned be damned and the redeemable shown redeemed. But the character void, engenders conversation that is nothing but disingenuous, derivative, drivel about the movie that “got away” with felony kidnapping.

This movie is about two people being in love it isn't the sexual kind of love it's the love of friendship the love of learning and the loving of someone who loves you back.
