Opening today in New York, COMPLIANCE is a tough psychological thriller that should have audiences screaming at the screen and wondering how on earth this disturbing tale could be based on actual, documented events. Arguably the most thought-provoking film so far this year, discussion groups have followed several advance screenings and audiences seem polarized in their reactions. Written and directed by CRAIG ZOBEL, the cast includes DREAMA WALKER, ANN DOWD, PAT HEALY, BILL CAMP, PHILIP ETTINGER and JAMES McCAFREY.
It’s been reported that, in some screenings, audience members have walked out in disgust or disbelief, a reaction that ZOBEL tells us he understands. During our recent interview, the director admitted that he was attracted to the tough material and holds no ill will towards viewers who can’t take the heat (comic relief provided by star DREAMA WALKKER).
