Based on true events: A call on the phone from a man posing as a police officer convinces a fast food restaurant manager to interrogate one of her employees. Well executed docu-drama/thriller, based on the real-life Bullitt County prank call scam and The Milgram experiment on obedience to authority figures.
Very thought-provoking, well directed with great casting and performances all around, notably from Ann Dowd in the lead role of Sandra. Escalating pressure and a disturbing aftertaste. An original and novel plot and storyline – simple, yet highly effective when coupled with Zobel’s careful and sensitive direction in a single location.
Premiered at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival and met with wide acclaim.
Compliance Cast: Ann Dowd, Dreama Walker, Pat Healy
