Abstract:

"When a consultant is hired to boost a factory's profits, economic theory collides with shop floor reality to create a deliciously dry social comedy. Anthony Hopkins plays Wallace, a time and motion expert. After a lifetime of turning men into machines, Wallace has become bereft of emotion, treating all with a frigid indifference. But when he arrives at Balls Moccasin factory he is unnerved by the welcoming reception from the unsuspecting workers. For in this workplace footwear manufacture offers only occasional distraction from the pastime of gossip and debate. Upon finishing his report; the solution- sack the staff, cease production and change to imports. But as he is unwittingly drawn in to the factory's family atmosphere and begins to consider the consequences of his advice. Has the man gone soft or will the old Wallace return and push for closure?"--Container.
