Movies Apt Pupil (1998, Ian McKellen, Brad Renfro) Published 3 months ago on November 27, 2018 Californian teenager Todd Bowden (Brad Renfro) becomes fascinated with the Nazi era after being given the subject as a school project and is slowly convinced that his neighbour, Arthur Denker, is actually a former concentration camp commander. Confronting the old man he is proved right, and Kurt Dussander (Ian McKellen) is unmasked. The boy has a simple proposition: he will keep silence in return for an eyewitness account of the Holocaust. Dussander agrees. Night after night, Todd’s dreams are corrupted by visions inspired by the old man’s stories, and his education begins to suffer. Dussander poses as the boy’s grandfather to con Mr French (David Schwimmer), the school counsellor, who becomes suspicious and begins to take a closer interest. As the truth threatens to engulf him, Todd decides he will protect the secret at any cost… Still basking in glory from The Usual Suspects , Singer revisited the work of Stephen King which inspired the director’s first feature, Public Access. Changing the ending and rewarding the author with a blink-and-miss cameo role, the result is a movie which shocks and subverts. https://youtube.com/watch?v=MouexZken-c production details France – USA | 107 minutes | 1998 Director: Bryan Singer Writer: Brandon Boyce (from the novel by Stephen King) cast Ian McKellen as Kurt Dussander Brad Renfro as Todd Bowden David Schwimmer as Edward French Bruce Davison as Richard Bowden Ann Dowd as Monica Bowden Elias Koteas as Archie Joe Morton as Dan Richler Jan Tříska as Isaac Weiskopf Joshua Jackson as Joey Mickey Cottrell as Sociology Teacher Michael Reid MacKay as Nightmare Victim James Karen as Victor Bowden Marjorie Lovett as Agnes Bowden David Cooley as Gym Teacher Blake Anthony Tibbetts as Teammate Heather McComb as Becky Trask Katherine Malone as Student Grace Sinden as Secretary Ann DowdBrad RenfroBrandon BoyceBruce DavisonBryan SingerDavid SchwimmerDramaElias KoteasIan McKellenJames KarenJan TřískaJoe MortonJoshua JacksonMichael Reid MacKayMickey CottrellStephen KingThriller Advertisement advertisement and this just in Episodes22 hours ago Miracle Workers: 12 Days (TBS Tues 26 Feb 2019) 12 Days: A troublesome human complicates Craig and Eliza’s plan, while Sanjay attempts to burnish his credentials.
