The final eight candidates for a highly desirable corporate job are locked together in an exam room and given a test with one question. It seems simple yet confusing that soon, tensions begin to unravel.
At a point of the movie is mentioned a dog called "Wolfie". It's a nod for Terminator 2: Judgment Day (1991), where T-800 (Arnold Schwarzenegger), after to know that John adoptive parent's dog is called Max, misspelled him as Wolfie when both are talking by phone, cheating Janelle to know if she is true Janelle or T-1000 (Robert Patrick) in disguise.

A movie for people who aren't afraid to use their brains
I, too, saw this movie at San Diego Comic-Con 2007, and was incredibly happy that I did. I would, however, in no way consider this a thriller, as another reviewer did. This is a movie to provoke deep thought and conversation and that dares to challenge mainstream beliefs. It is one of the most intensely engaging dramas that I have had the pleasure to see. Excellent ensemble performances created believably real characters, each with his or her own fallibilities, personal credo, and enthusiasms.
The movie is basically a conversation amongst college professors. So if you are looking for serial murders, chase scenes, or shoot-outs, you won't find it here. If you enjoy thought experiments and intelligent discourse, and appreciate what it means to accept your friends for who they are, see this.
I will buy several copies to give to friends.
