United States | 2012 | Craig Zobel
Accused of theft by a policeman on the phone, an attractive young woman working at an Ohio fast-food restaurant is detained, strip-searched, humiliated, and violated in the restaurant’s back room by her boss, fellow employees, and one outsider—all of them following spoken orders from the unseen cop. Based on a true case, this disturbing account of how ordinary people kowtow to authority was co-produced by Cleveland’s Tyler Davidson (Take Shelter). It’s one of the most acclaimed American films of 2012. “A taut, understated minimalist masterwork.” –Philadelphia Inquirer.
90 min. 35mm. Adults only! East Side Cleveland premiere.
