Yale University, 1961. Stanley Milgram designs a psychology experiment in which people think they're delivering electric shocks to an affable stranger strapped into a chair in another room. Subjects are told it's about memory, but the experiment is really about conformity, conscience, and free will. Milgram is trying to test people's tendency to comply with authority. His controversial experiments and results hit a nerve, and got him accused of being a deceptive, manipulative monster. Much like Mad Men and Masters of Sex, EXPERIMENTER is a stylish and engaging look at a fascinating period of American history. It features a strong cast including Winona Ryder (Black Swan), Peter Sarsgaard (Black Mass), Taryn Manning (TV series Orange is the New Black) and John Leguizamo (John Wick).from£9.49 | RRP:

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.
