‘Snowden’ to release on Sept 16

New Delhi: Edward Joseph Snowden is an American computer professional, former Central Intelligence Agency employee who leaked classified information from the National Security Agency in 2013. On September 16, 2016 the whole world will get to know the mystery that is Edward Snowden.
Directed by Academy Award Winner Oliver Stone, the movie ‘Snowden’ is an American biographical political thriller film with Joseph Gordon-Levitt as the protagonist and Shailene Woodley as his partner, Lindsay Mills. The story depicts the 30-year-old whistleblower’s life from an early stage when he was very excited about landing a top position job with the government but soon after knowing the deep, dark secrets of the workings he decides to steal the data and bring it in front of people by leaking it through the Guardian newspaper.
The movie has two official trailers out for the audiences with a highly-talented ensemble of actors including Nicholas Cage, Scott Eastwood, Zachary Quinto who plays Glenn Greenwald, the journalist chosen by Snowden to leak sensitive information, Melissa Leo who takes the role of documentary filmmaker Laura Poitras and many more the feature film promises to be a hard-hitting experience. The trailers feature everything from the plot to the basic fiber of the movie where all the characters have been treated and depicted with utmost care and authenticity. It is a movie that deals with the understanding of the term ’loyalty’ and pushes a person to introspect and judge the rights from the wrongs. It questions whether a single person can change the world as we know it.
On completion of ‘Snowden’ Oliver Stone said, “As a director, I think the film has a power beyond its details. Maybe no one will come. But those people that come will see something they have not seen before.” He then adds, “There are no chases. There are no murders. I love tension but there is a different kind of tension … What Snowden did in history, I believe, will make a difference. I don’t think it is going to go away.”
