Last Thursday Winona attended the San Francisco International Film Festival for a Experimenter gala premiere. She was joined by director Michael Almereyda and Alan Elms (who was a research assistant to Stanley Milgram) for a Q&A. I have added 68 pictures in our gallery, with a HUGE help of my friend Carol, and you can follow the links for the pics:
Magnolia Pictures has acquired North American rights to Michael Almereydaâ€™s drama â€œExperimenter,â€ starring Peter Sarsgaard and Winona Ryder.
Magnolia is planning a theatrical release later this year.
The film portrays Stanley Milgramâ€™s experiment, in which subjects were made to believe they were administering electric shocks to others in order to test why people will cede to authority. The San Francisco International Film Festival announced Wednesday that â€œExperimenterâ€ would be its closing night film on May 7.
â€œExperimenterâ€ premiered in January at the Sundance Film Festival. The cast includes Jim Gaffigan, Taryn Manning, Anton Yelchin, Kellan Lutz, John Leguizamo, Anthony Edwards, Josh Hamilton, Lori Singer, Vondie Curtis-Hall and Dennis Haysbert. The film was produced by Uri Singer, Fabio Golombek, Isen Robbins and Aimee Schoof.
“The Experimenter” premiere in Sundance took place this Sunday (25) and Winona graced the red carpet all in black, as you can see in the pictures below:
While in Sundance Winona talked with MTV’s Joshua Horowitz and he asked about the interview Tim Burton did when promoting his fim ‘Big Eyes’. Her words? “Yeeeeaaaah!”
Other than it looks like it’s really happening. I’m so thrilled for Michael [Keaton] with everything, it couldn’t have happened to a greater guy, and he was so brilliant, and I loved him, and I would be… I’m really, really excited.
Winona Ryder, Peter Sarsgaard & Kellan Lutz along with director John Leguizamo, discuss their new film, ‘Experimenter’ at Sundance 2015. Peter Sarsgaard says his character as lived life ‘one step out of this world so that he could see it.’
As you know, Winona is currently in Utah for the Sundance Festival, to promote her new film The Experimenter. She’s also one of the festival jury members and today she attended the first event at the Variety Studio, plus posed to some portraits with her cast members Peter Sarsgaard and Kellan Lutz. Many thanks to Rachel and Holly for helping me with this high quality images.
