Experimenter Film Poster


Biographical drama based on the controversial 1961 Milgram experiment and written and directed by Michael Almereyda. Peter Sarsgaard plays real-life psychologist Stanley Milgram who conducts experiments at Yale University, exploring authority and compliance on human subjects using electric shock treatment. The experiment requires participants to administer electric shocks following incorrect answers to simple questions to an unseen, unwitting person in a nearby room. The story follows Milgram's early life, from meeting and marrying his wife, Sasha (Winona Ryder), to the infamy that surrounded him when his experiments became widely known and public outrage at his inhumanity began to grow.
