Unsettling Compliance trailer

Compliance.jpgCompliance was a pretty unsettling film from really early on. I have to admit that when I saw it at the Glasgow Film Festival I really wasn't sure that it would work, after all the blurb stretched my belief in the reality of the story a bit too far. However it does, and it stretches your understanding of what the characters would do as the story progresses.

I was surprised at how powerful it was and how well made, and the trailer for Compliance shows you just how unsettling it can be and how far things will go.

Here's the blurb for Compliance, a film that is based on an event that actually took place and was scarily similar to the film, although it probably never went nearly as far.

At a fast food restaurant, the manager, Sandra, is having a bad day. Suddenly, she gets a phone call from a man claiming to be a police officer who has a complaint that one of her young female employees has stolen from a customer. At the orders of this authoritative sounding stranger, Sandra takes the apparent accused, Becky, to a back room to search her before she is picked up. Once there, the phone scammer manipulates the gullible personnel into participating in Becky's sexual humiliation that grows more twisted with every new sucker on the phone. Only when one final person has the conscience to revolt do they realize the crime they were tricked into, which the real police are hard pressed to solve.

It's written and directed by Craig Zobel and stars Dreama Walker and Ann Dowd, both of whom are really good in their roles.

Now for the trailer for Compliance through TrailerAddict, and if you haven't seen it yet then you really should, it's a superb film. Plus the fact it's been released just about everywhere with the UK and Ireland gaining a release last week and Denmark, Sweden and Japan still waiting.
