In journalist-turned-director Tara Thorne’s feature debut COMPULSUS, a poet wants to do something about violence against women. Fed up with hearing about her friends reporting assaults by men in a small community, local poet Wally takes matters into her own hands, beating up a known perpetrator who assaults his dates. She soon becomes a vigilante for women living in fear, but overcome with the thrill of giving men a taste of their own medicine she risks losing control; and her newfound love Lou. The definition of compulsus — “striking together; hostile” — gives new meaning to #MeToo message in this compelling, conversation-sparking thriller.
