Compliance (2012)

Compliance is a crime, drama, thriller based on true events whose storyline is summarized well by Kenneth Crisholm on IMBD;  “At a fast food restaurant, the manager, Sandra, is having a bad day. Suddenly, she gets a phone call from a man claiming to be a police officer who has a complaint that one of her young female employees has stolen from a customer. At the orders of this authoritative sounding stranger, Sandra takes the apparent accused, Becky, to a back room to search her before she is picked up. Once there, the phone scammer manipulates the gullible personnel into participating in Becky’s sexual humiliation that grows more twisted with every new sucker on the phone. Only when one final person has the conscience to revolt do they realize the crime they were tricked into, which the real police are hard pressed to solve.” This movie leaves you feeling sad and disgusted. The fact that it is based on true incidents that occurred over 70 times in 30 states makes it even more disturbing.  It makes you believe how gullible people can be when they think they are following the direction of someone of authority.
