COMPLIANCE is an upcoming drama film written and directed by Craig Zobel (Great World of Sound), and starring Ann Dowd, Dreama Walker, and Pat Healy. Based on the Strip Search Prank Call Scam, the film premiered at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival in January and received highly positive reviews.
Becky (Walker) and Sandra (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.
