Exhibit A (2007)
Sixteen year old Julia (Brittany Ashworth) receives a video camera for her birthday, and captures the violent disintegration of her family on tape over the course of one harrowing summer. At first turning her lens on her pretty new neighbor and her mischievous brother, Judith later begins to focus on her father Andy (Bradley Cole), who puts in a bid on a sprawling house by the seaside after claiming to have gotten a big promotion at work. But by the time Julia discovers that her father has been deceiving the entire family and they're actually in dire financial straits, it's already too late. As dad starts to crack under the pressure, Julia, her mother, and her brother begin to fear for their lives. Meanwhile, the frightened teen keeps her camera rolling, never knowing when the next shot may be her last. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi … More

Audience Reviews for Exhibit A
Exhibit A is another found footage film, but this time it decides to portray a terrifying drama rather than a horror. Judith has just received a video camera from her father, who accidentally broke her camera. She becomes a voyeur of everyday life involving her painfully lovey dovey family. With a promotion on the cards for her father, the family seem to be on the up and up. As the film progresses we see sudden changes in the father who seems to be hiding something from his wife and kids. Exhibit A is a fantastic film, and really thrusts you into the life of this family. As the tension mounts a number of key scenes give off all the emotional strain, terror, and awkwardness you would expect as an observer. In one moment we see the father and two children playfully try and capture a goof for You've Been Framed, as the son continuously fails to make the stunt looks realistic, the fun playful game soon infuriates the dad and when his anger explodes it's a truly horrifying moment. The film is a success because it seems so real. You hear about similar stories unfortunately often in the press. The final scene just shows how dedicated these actors are. Maintaining such a draining performance for such an extended take is to be highly commended. Not an enjoyable nor easy watch, but a very involving and affecting one.More
