Receiving its premiere at the Sundance Film Festival, this fascinating true story of Jewish psychologist Stanley Milgram, and his groundbreaking ‘Obedience Experiments’ in 1961, features brilliantly pitched performances from Winona Ryder and Peter Sarsgaard. Milgram’s controversial experiments demonstrated man’s ability to obey malevolent authority, post-Holocaust, and became a major publishing sensation. Award-winning director Michael Almereyda delivers a stylish and highly original film on one of the 20th century’s most important intellectuals.
