The Stanford Prison Experiment trailer...
Prison experiments never work - just look at Das Experiment, The Experiment for proof. This film seems to be a riff on the same thing.
The film stars Billy Crudup, Ezra Miller, Tye Sheridan, Keir Gilchrist, Olivia Thirlby, Michael Angarano, Jesse Carere, Thomas Mann. Kyle Patrick Alvarez directs from a Tim Talbot script.
Twenty-four male students out of seventy-five were selected to take on randomly assigned roles of prisoners and guards in a mock prison situated in the basement of the Stanford psychology building.
