Directed by Oliver Hirshbiegel
Based on the Stanford Prison Experiment conducted in
1971, this chilling drama finds a journalist (Moritz Bleibtreu) involved in
a scientific experiment on the effects of prison life where participants are
assigned to play guards and inmates in a make-shift prison. The benign
research project escalates out of control when the line between role-playing
and reality becomes blurred. German with English subtitles.
