Directed by Valdimar Jóhannsson

María and Ingvar get along well enough on their remote Icelandic sheep farm, but the couple are haunted by sadness. The birth of a mysterious, but seemingly miraculous ‘gift’ from one of their ewes sees the couple snatch at the prospect of joy, but something dark is coming. A powerful metaphor about human relationships, Lamb also trades in Icelandic mythology. A near perfect synthesis of horror and melodrama.

Socially Distanced Screenings at HOME: An Update          

From Mon 27 Dec until Sun 30 Jan, the majority of film screenings at HOME will be socially distanced.

How do our socially distanced screenings work?

When booking, please select whether you would like to sit at the front, middle or back of the screen.  You will automatically be allocated the best available seats in that area. Our booking system automatically places two empty seats either side of your booked seats.

When you arrive at HOME, please take a moment to check on your tickets which seats you have booked. If you are unsure of where to go, our staff will be on hand and happy to help. Once in the cinema, we ask that you stay in your allocated seat and do not move to sit with others.

What to expect when visiting HOME

We have a number of measures in place at HOME for the comfort and safety of our visitors. Find out more here.
