STUDIOCANAL is delighted to announce that critically acclaimed director Michael Almereyda’s Experimenter a bold, stylish biopic about famed social psychologist Stanley Milgram and his infamous ‘obedience’ experiments starring Peter Sarsgaard (Black Mass) as Milgram and Winona Ryder (Black Swan) as his wife Sasha, will be released on DVD and digital HD on 29th February.
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 rich in detail and a smart, engaging look at a fascinating period of American history, and a figure who shaped contemporary culture and whose work remains socially relevant today. Alongside Sarsgaard and Ryder the film features a strong supporting cast including Taryn Manning (Orange is the New Black) , John Leguizamo (John Wick), Kellan Lutz (Twilight franchise), Anton Yelchin (Terminator Salvation) and Anthony Edwards (Top Gun, Zodiac).
To mark the release of Experimenter, we’ve been given 3 sets of a special DVD bundle to give away.
