 Title  Lamb
The Catholic Church runs many institutions in Ireland that employ priests, brothers, and nuns to do all the work. This is true for many orphanages, asylums, hospitals, and other institutions. In a remote remand home (reform school) run by monks, a brother befriends a troubled and sickly youth. Feeling that the school is in no way helping the lad, the brother has a crisis of faith and takes matters into his own hands. Yet, the two cannot outrun all the rules and regulations making life inside and outside the home impossible. This film sharply contrasts the recent The Magdalene Sisters where the nuns and priests in charge are so sure they are doing the best for their charges. But both films emphasize the perils of bucking the system. Link to reviews Click picture
