The Orchard Nabs Rights to ‘Lamb,’ Plots 2016 Release

The Orchard has secured North American, U.K., Australian and New Zealand distribution rights to “Lamb,” the story of a man at an emotional crossroads.

It plans to release the film in 2016.

Ross Partridge wrote, directed and stars in the film about a man who, following the collapse of his marriage and the death of his father, embarks on a cross-country road trip with an 11-year-old girl. “Lamb” screened at SXSW Festival, where it received a warm notice from Variety critic Justin Chang, who wrote that the director “navigates risky material with assurance.”

After making its mark in the music business, the Orchard has been moving aggressively into film distribution in recent months, nabbing buzzy Sundance titles such as “Cartel Land” and “The Overnight.”

Partridge has acted in films including “The Freebie” and “Baghead,” and directed the feature film “Interstate 84.” Oona Laurence (“Southpaw,” Broadway’s “Matilda”) co-stars in the picture. “Lamb” was produced by Mel Eslyn and Taylor Williams, and executive produced by Ross Partridge and William Ruch. The film was co-produced by Jennifer Lafleur.

The deal was negotiated by the Orchard’s Danielle DiGiacomo and ICM Partners on behalf of the filmmakers.
