The Stanford Prison Experiment 2015
- 122 minutes
What happens when a college psych study goes shockingly wrong? Based on the notorious true story, Stanford University professor Dr. Philip Zimbardo (Billy Crudup), in 1971, cast 24 student volunteers as prisoners and guards in a simulated jail to examine the source of abusive behavior in the prison system. The results astonished the world, as participants went from middle-class undergrads to drunk-with-power sadists and submissive victims in just a few days.
