Stanford Prison Experiment Trailer

If you’ve ever taken an introductory psychology class, you’ve probably heard of the infamous Stanford Prison Experiment. The idea behind the experiment was to take student volunteers and put them into a simulated jail where some of the students were made to be prisoners and others were made to be guards. The intention was to study human nature, but those conducting the experiment didn’t realize the humanity part of the experiment would go out the window so quickly.

The aptly titled indie The Stanford Prison Experiment chronicles the results of the test as the unfold, and the result is an unnerving drama that shows you how prison, whether you’re a prisoner or a guard, can change a person entirely.

The work of David Sedaris hasn’t led to film adaptations, at least until C.O.G. showed up at Sundance earlier this year. The film is based on Sedaris’ life story, as related in the book Naked, with Glee‘s Jonathan Groff starring as David, who takes off from his family to summer in the Northwest US.
