This movie is based on the novella 'Apt Pupil' from Stephen King's collection DIFFERENT SEASONS. A teenager (Brad Renfro) makes the acquaintance of a Nazi war criminal (Ian McKellen) hiding out in a surburban community and becomes his 'pupil', promising to remain silent if the old German will speak of the atrocities committed in the concentration camps.
Now a major film starring Ian McKellen , Brad Renfro (SLEEPERS), Kevin Pollack (THE USUAL SUSPECTS) and David Schwimmer (FRIENDS), and directed by Bryan Singer, who was responsible for the highly acclaimed THE USUAL SUSPECTS.
