The Stanford Prison Experiment

2015 Drama

In the summer of 1971, Stanford University psychology professor Philip Zimbardo (Crudup) launches an experiment to test the psychological effects of imprisonment on both guards and prisoners. Twenty-four male students are randomly assigned as either guards or prisoners in what is set up to be a seven- to 14-day simulation. The participants quickly fall into their roles in a mock prison set up in the basement of the psychology building, with the "guards" becoming abusive and power-crazy while the degraded "prisoners" strategize amongst themselves.
