Entertainment Weekly published this exclusive clip of The Experimenter, directed by Michael Almereyda (Hamlet), that premieres at the Sundance Film Festival on Jan. 25.
Sundance Festival released the schedule for their festival, and Experimenter will have its world premiere on Saturday, January 25, 2015 at 3:30 p.m., in the Eccles Theatre, Park City.
On Sundance website you’ll have more detailed information on other screenings and tickets.
Check below the interview Tim Burton (while promoting his new film Big Eyes) did to MTV’s Josh Horowitz on directing Bettlejuice, and most importantly, Winona being on it:
Experimenter is among the films that will premiere in Sundance Festival, Variety is reporting. Festival director John Cooper noted that while this year’s 16 Premieres selections will be among the buzziest, most commercial titles in Park City “they’re not without an independent feel to them, and that’s what I’m always looking for. There is a very independent spirit behind these films.”
The Sundance Film Festival runs Jan. 22-Feb. 1. Let’s hope Winona attends it!
The International Press Academy (IPA) announced its nominations for the 19th Annual Satellite™ Awards in the Motion Pictures and Television categories, and Turks & Caicos was nominated as Best Motion Picture Made for Television. It shares the category with HBO’s The Normal Heart and Lifetime’s Return to Zero, The Gabby Douglas Story and The Trip to Bountifull.
The winners will be announced in a ceremony held on February 15, 2015 in Los Angeles, Calif.
Experimenter official website went live last week and with it, tons of gorgeous images of Winona as Sasha Milgram:
Here’s the official film synopsis
Yale University, 1961. Stanley Milgram (Peter Sarsgaard) designs a psychology experiment in which people think they’re delivering electric shocks to an affable stranger (Jim Gaffigan) strapped into a chair in another room.
Subjects are told it’s about memory, but the experiment is really about conformity, conscience, and free will. Milgram is trying to come to terms with the Holocaust and to test people’s tendency to comply with authority.
Milgram meets Sasha (Winona Ryder), a former dancer living in New York. Their courtship includes a visit to the Yale lab, where Milgram’s experiment has yielded disturbing results: 65 per cent of Milgram’s subjects deliver shocks that may be fatal, obeying polite commands from a lab-coated authority figure (John Palladino).
