Experimenter (2015)

Biography, Drama, History 1h 30m

Compelling account of pioneering social psychologist Stanley Milgram and his controversial behaviour experiments in the 1960’s that tested people’s willingness to obey authority.

Designing an experiment that remains relevant to this day, in which people think they’re delivering painful electric shocks to a stranger in another room, Milgram’s exploration of authority and conformity struck a nerve in both popular culture and the scientific community in the post-WWII era.

A bracing portrait of a brilliant man whose conscience and creative spirit continue to be resonant, poignant, and inspirational, from director Michael Almereyda (MARJORIE PRIME).

“A heady brew of theories about the essence of human nature, and a Peter Sarsgaard performance that catches Milgram in all his seductive, megalomaniacal brilliance.” ~ Scott Foundas, Variety.
