Dir. Craig Zobel
Rating: [R16] Offensive language,sexual themes and content that may disturb

“a suspenseful psychological drama for viewers prepared to tolerate its extremes.”~Justin Lowe, Variety

Aroview: When a prank caller masquerading as a police officer convinces a fast food restaurant manager to interrogate an innocent young employee, no-one is left unharmed.

This tense chamber-thriller might not be entirely psychologically water-tight, but the subtext of authoritarian control is strong enough to carry it over any dips in credulity. The acting too, is top-notch, especially that of Ann Dowd, whose normalcy as a responsible middle-manager makes the controversial events relatable to a wider audience outside the arthouse. Based on true events.
