Synopsis

Underground: The Julian Assange Story
An ambitious young computer hacker uncovers classified government documents in a Pentagon database, and discovers the true power of information in director Robert Connelly's biopic exploring the teenage years of WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange. The year is 1989. Upon acquiring a Commodore 64, 18-year-old computer wiz Julian (Alex Williams) adopts the pseudonym "Mendax", and forms a hacker group known as the International Subversives with two of his best friends. Before long, the group begins gaining access to all manners of sensitive websites. But they operate on a strict code: stealing is prohibited, they are to remain completely invisible, and any information they uncover must be shared with the group. When Julian accesses a Pentagon database containing evidence that the government has deceived the public about a recent military offensive, however, he sees an opportunity to become the voice of truth in the age of deception. Meanwhile, police detective Ken Roberts (Anthony LaPaglia) learns that capturing a talented computer hacker is no simple task. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
