Tape is a psychological drama from director Richard Linklater, which takes place in a motel room over the course of a single evening. Three friends (Ethan Hawke, Robert Sean Leonard and Uma Thurman) reunite after a decade of separation to reminisce about their school days. Disturbing revelations are made about events that happened in their shared past, and relations between the characters get heated as each seeks to uncover the truth. This is a film that draws you in and keeps you guessing about what really happened, as the layers of lies are gradually peeled away. Based on a play by Stephen Beller, Tape delivers a gripping storyline despite the limits imposed by the one room setting and real-time unfolding of events, largely thanks to superb performances from all three actors and an excellent script. The intensity of the situation builds throughout the film, which eventually reaches a dramatic conclusion.
