Magnolia Pictures has released the official trailer for Compliance. The film is directed and scripted by Craig Zobel of comedy ‘Great World of Sound’ fame.
Based on true events, the thriller film Compliance stars Ann Dowd, Dreama Walker, Bill Camp and Pat Healy. The film first premiered at Sundance Film Festival early this year and aims to hit limited theatres on August 17th, 2012.
Becky (Dreama Walker) and Sandra (Ann Dowd) aren’t the best of friends. Sandra is a middle-aged manager at a fast-food restaurant; Becky is a teenaged counter girl who really needs the job. One stressful day (too many customers and too little bacon), a police officer calls, accusing Becky of stealing money from a customer’s purse, which she vehemently denies. Sandra, overwhelmed by her managerial responsibilities, complies with the officer’s orders to detain Becky. This choice begins a nightmare that tragically blurs the lines between expedience and prudence, legality and reason.
