(2021) (Noomi Rapace, Hilmir Snaer Gudnason) (R)
- QUICK TAKE:
- Drama/Horror: Married farmers living in a remote part of Iceland must contend with the arrival of an unusual newborn and what that means for them and their future.
María (NOOMI RAPACE) and Ingvar (HILMIR SNAER GUDNASON) are married farmers in a remote part of Iceland. Their hard work and relatively mundane life end up interrupted by an unusual birth in their barn. Seeing the uniqueness of a newborn lamb, they take it from its mother and raise it like a child, naming the girl Ada. But we eventually see the reason for their attraction as the newcomer is half-sheep, half-human, something that's quite startling to Ingvar's brother, Pétur (BJÖRN HLYNUR HARALDSSON), when he shows up.
Pétur initially believes he must do something about what he views as a monstrosity, but then has a change of heart and views Ada as part of his family. But lurking in the background of all of that is the reality of what's transpired and that eventually shows itself to the farming couple.

- Older teens interested in more refined horror films might have some interest.
- WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: R
