In 1961, Yale University psychology professor Stanley Milgram was determined to find out how and why people could be pushed to extremes. The son of Holocaust survivors, he was driven to create the “obedience experiments”: how far will ordinary people go if commanded to by an authority figure?

Branded a monster by the press, Milgram fights to prove to the world that “evil” may not be what we thought.

The latest film from indie director Michael Almereyda (Anarchy) was a huge hit at its Sundance Film Festival premiere, its playful yet provocative true story winning over audiences. Featuring an all-star cast that includes Peter Sarsgaard and Winona Ryder.
