Synopsis:
What happens when a college psych study goes shockingly wrong? In this tense, psychological thriller based on the notorious true story, Billy Crudup stars as Stanford University professor Dr. Philip Zimbardo, who, in 1971, cast 24 student volunteers as prisoners and guards in a simulated jail to examine the source of abusive behaviour 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.

Balanced factual drama - The Stanford Prison Experiment review by RS

I enjoyed the film as it seemed to stick to the facts and did not oversensationalise. Great performances from all the cast too. Chilling example of what happens if you give people unchecked power
