Must Watch: Controversial Sundance Indie 'Compliance' First Trailer
"You don't realize what kind of trouble you're in." Magnolia Pictures has unveiled the first trailer for Craig Zobel's Compliance, a film that premiered at Sundance to some controversy, but ended up making quite a splash because of its subversiveness and honesty. Based on a number of true stories, Compliance is about a teenage girl (played by Dreama Walker) working at a fast food restaurant who gets abused by coworkers because a man claiming to be a cop on the phone is telling them what to do. It's one of those you have to see it to believe it kind of stories, based on real events that happened. It's a good film, but extremely unsettling.
Watch the first official trailer for Craig Zobel's Compliance, in high def from Apple:
When a prank caller posing as a police officer convinces a fast food restaurant manager to interrogate an innocent young female employee, no-one is left unharmed. Based on true events (more info on Wikipedia).
Compliance is both written & directed by up-and-coming American filmmaker Craig Zobel, of the film Great World of Sound previously, who is also one of the co-founders of Homestar Runner. This premiered at the Sundance Film Festival and was eventually picked up by Magnolia Pictures. One of my favorite reviews is on The Film Stage. Compliance will hit limited theaters only starting on August 17th this summer. Interested?
