The Stanley Milgram Story

Written and directed by Michael Almereyda. Stir up provocative discussions about authority, conformity, free will, and human nature with this engrossing 2015 dramatization of Stanley Milgram's life and his landmark experiment, which tested the willingness of people to obey authority figures who instructed them to deliver electric shocks to unseen strangers. The film not only offers a chilling look at what it would have been like to be part of the experiment, but also chronicles the controversy that erupted when the New York Times published Milgram's results, and how the experiment's notoriety often overshadowed his subsequent research into and findings about human behavior. Stars Peter Sarsgaard and Winona Ryder. Grades 9 and up. English with English SDH, Spanish, and French subtitles. Color. 98 minutes. BB Film Productions.
