Rated R · 90 minutes · 2012

You’ll probably watch this film, based on a true story, thinking it’s an exaggeration of what really happened. Well, it adheres pretty closely to real events that occurred at a Mount Washington, Ky., fast-food restaurant. A man claiming to be a police officer calls a restaurant manager (Ann Dowd) and tells her a female employee (Dreama Walker) is suspected of stealing from a customer. Over the course of an evening, the caller convinces the manager to strip-search the girl, and things escalate from there. I watched the movie thinking it must’ve been total bullshit. Then I found out that not only is this based on a real event; there have been many other events like it. It is a study in what a person will do if they think the law is involved, and it’s scary. Featuring great performances and solid direction from Craig Zobel, this one will stick in your craw after it’s over.
Director: Craig Zobel
Cast: Ann Dowd, Dreama Walker, Pat Healy, Bill Camp, Philip Ettinger, James McCaffrey and Ashlie Atkinson
