Inspired by 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) receives a phone call from a police officer saying that an employee, a pretty young blonde named Becky (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.

A little drawn out at times, but scarily real.
I couldn't get through it. And I hate not finishing a movie. I was in a state of perpetual cringe watching this one and gave up when it got to where it felt like I needed a shower.
Interesting concept but the characters are written horribly. What rational person wouldn't have hung up the phone after about thirty seconds? I have a hard time believing even one employee would buy this story, let alone the whole store. The shock value of the film is deeply undermined by the lack of reason.
That was really uncomfortable, but great film.
good movie but the ending could of been better
