Apt Pupil

Directed by Bryan Singer (The Usual Suspects; X-Men), this is a chilling tale of blackmail, power and moral corruption. Ian McKellan stars as Kurt Dussander, a Nazi war criminal living in the USA whose identity is discovered by local teen Todd Bowden (Brad Renfro). Fascinated by the atrocities committed during the war, Todd blackmails Dussander into recounting the details of his crimes. The relationship between the two, escalated by Todd’s manipulative mind, soon gets out of control.

A compelling and thought-provoking film.
