It’s no secret that A24 seems to know what they’re doing when it comes to the films they put out. This independent film company keeps hitting high notes with films such as Lady Bird, The Florida Project, and Midsommar. The film company, out of New York City, knows how to make a movie.

So far in 2021 A24 has put out 5 different films. Their newest addition, The Green Knight, directed by David Lowery, is a must-see. It’s a well put together and original take on the 14th-century poem Sir Gawain and the Green Knight.

A24’s prior films aren’t exactly what we need to talk about. Instead, it’s the next film that the production company has coming: Lamb.

On October 8th A24 plans on taking its audience on an adventure to rural Iceland. In the film starring Noomi Rapace, we see a childless couple. From what can be surmised from the trailer, this couple ends up taking a newborn lamb and raising it as their child. This decision doesn’t seem to sit with their other sheep very well from what we can tell. It looks like the sheep don’t agree with this decision.

Now, what I described above may sound like something from an animated comedy. This film, however? It’s live-action.

That’s right, we get to see two humans treating a lamb as their child.
