The Stanford Prison Experiment DVD

The Stanford Prison Experiment is based on the notorious 1971 psychological study by Stanford University professor Dr Philip Zimbardo, who consulted closely on the making of the film. Billy Crudup (Spotlight, Watchmen) stars as the professor who 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 short days.

Featuring a stunning ensemble cast including outstanding performances from Ezra Miller (We Need To Talk About Kevin, The Perks of Being a Wallflower), Tye Sheridan (Mud, Dark Places) and Olivia Thirlby (Juno, No Strings Attached), The Stanford Prison Experiment was the winner of two awards at the Sundance Film Festival, including Best Screenplay.

This chilling, edge-of-your seat thriller is filled with claustrophobic intensity as it explores the dark side of power and the effects of imprisonment.
