“Nobody likes guards.” And these guys seem to get a little too deeply into their role playing in director Kyle Patrick Alvarez’s drama based on Stanford professor Philip Zimbardo’s infamous social experiment using college kids as prison guards and inmates. The movie that IFC Films acquired out of Sundance took the festival’s Waldo Salt Screenwriting Award for Tim Talbott’s script plus the Alfred P. Sloan Feature Film Prize. It stars Billy Crudup, Olivia Thirlby, Ezra Miller, Jesse Carere, Keir Gilchrist, Thomas Mann and Michael Angarano. Scheduled to hit theaters July 17th and VOD a week later.
