Stanford Prison Experiment, The
horizontal line

When a California psychology professor (Billy Crudup) and his colleagues (Olivia Thirlby, Nelsan Ellis, Matt Bennett, James Wolk, et al.) arrange for students to take part in a psychological study posing as prisoners (Ezra Miller, Thomas Mann, Tye Sheridan, Johnny Simmons, Ki Hong Lee, Chris Sheffield, et al.) and correctional officers (Moises Arias, Michael Angarano, Keir Gilchrist, et al.) in a simulated prison environment in the basement of the Stanford Psychology Building in an attempt to understand human behavior in this captivating, fascinating, factually based, 122-minute film based on Dr. Philip Zimbardo’s novel The Lucifer Effect, the experiment veers off course as guards take their jobs a little too seriously and the prisoners begin to feel the effects of confinement and loss of control in August 1971.
