Mystery, Thriller |
Exam is a British psychological thriller film written by Simon Garrity and Stuart Hazeldine, directed by Hazeldine, and starring Colin Salmon, Chris Carey, Jimi Mistry, Luke Mably, Gemma Chan, Chukwudi Iwuji, John Lloyd Fillingham, Pollyanna McIntosh, Adar Beck and Nathalie Cox.
In an alternate Britain, eight mandatory candidates dress for what appears to be an employment assessment exam. The group enter a room and sit at individual desks. Each desk has a paper printed with the word “candidate” and a number from one to eight. The Invigilator, a representative of the company, DATAPREV, explains that the exam is 80 minutes and consists of only one question, but there are three rules: The candidates must not talk to him or the armed guard at the door, must not spoil their paper, and may not leave the room. If they do, they will be disqualified. The Invigilator asks them if they have any questions, then leaves.
As the exam starts, it turns out that the papers are otherwise blank. Within minutes, a Chinese candidate is disqualified for spoiling her paper by writing on it. After her ejection, the seven remaining candidates realise it is permissible to talk to each other and collaborate. One candidate, “White,” assigns nicknames to each candidate based on hair color and skin colour: Black, Blonde, Brown, Brunette, Dark, and Deaf for one candidate who does not speak or respond to the group.
