When a police officer tells you to do something, you do it. Right? Based on true events, COMPLIANCE tells the chilling story of just how far one might go to obey a figure of authority. On a particularly busy day at a suburban Ohio fast food joint, high-strung manager Sandra (Ann Dowd (Garden State) receives a phone call from a police officer saying that an employee, a pretty young blonde named Becky (newcomer Dreama Walker) has stolen money from a customer. Convinced she's only doing what's right, Sandra commences the investigation, following step-by-step instructions from the officer at the other end of the line, no matter how invasive they become. As we watch, we ask ourselves two questions: “Why don’t they just say no?” and the more troubling, "Am I certain I wouldn't do the same?"
The second feature from director Craig Zobel (the man behind the 2007 Sundance hit Great World of Sound), COMPLIANCE recounts this riveting nightmare in which the line between legality and reason is hauntingly blurred. The cast delivers startlingly authentic performances that make the appalling events unfolding onscreen all the more difficult to watch – but impossible to turn away from. Delving into the complex psychology of this real-life story, COMPLIANCE proves that sometimes truth really is stranger than fiction. Why isn’t it easy to “just say no....”
“[COMPLIANCE is]...an ordeal for those watching no less than those performing.... dares spectators to stick around and, implicitly, become accessories to the crime.... riveting, repelling...” - Richard Corliss, Time
“...potent and provocative... will haunt you long after you leave the theater. You can't shake 'Compliance'... Hang on. You're in for a bumpy ride.” - Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
“In a riveting performance, Ann Dowd creates a figure as recognizable as her actions are appalling... 'Compliance' is potent filmmaking that's not easily forgotten.” - Sheri Lindon, Los Angeles Times
