Exam

I wouldn’t go this far…

The candidates are told: “there is one question before you and one answer is required”.  They are also told no spoiling the exam papers, no leaving the room, and no speaking to the guard or Invigilator.  After they finally figure out it is within the rules to talk to each other, the game is on.  It is a battle of wits and alliances with everyone trying to figure out the question and answer to the exam.

This film was directed by Stuart Hazeldine and was filmed in the UK.  The actors include:  Adar Beck, Gemma Chan, Nathalie Cox, John Lloyd Fillingham, Chukwudi Iwuji, Pollyanna McIntosh, Luke Mably, Jimi Mistry, Colin Salmon, and Chris Carey.

I enjoyed watching this thriller to see how the plot unfolded.  Each person had their own agenda and reasons for wanting the job with the company and they had their own way of manipulating the situation in their favor.  This made the story seem more believable with how each character reacted to the situations.  The entire movie took place in one room but that fit in well with the story.  I liked the twist in the story as well as how the story ends.  I am very glad I have never personally had to go through that kind of torture to get a job.  I would not have made it very far.
