    Synopsis


    The Fifth Estate
    Bill Condon's thriller The Fifth Estate charts the creation of WikiLeaks by the ambitious and arguably ethically dubious Julian Assange, played by Benedict Cumberbatch. The movie opens with Assange hiring Daniel Domscheit-Berg (Daniel Brühl), a fellow tech whiz, to help him keep his new website operational. The site gave whistleblowers an entirely anonymous platform to share classified documents, and soon the pair find themselves in possession of information that will bring down a corrupt bank. As their power and influence grows, they must consider teaming with established media sources, especially when they are sent documents that would reveal ultra-sensitive state secrets from some of the world's most-powerful governments. The Fifth Estate screened at the 2013 Toronto International Film Festival. ~ Perry Seibert, Rovi

      Not a great film nor a bad one. decent visual attempts. Based mostly from the point of view of Mr. Assanges estranged partner, Daniel Domscheit-Berg, the story was not as engaging nor convincing as I would have liked. Benedict Cumberbatch, however, was very convincing and engaging in his portrayal of Julian Assange. For the most part I'd still recommend it to certain persons.

      This move was great to watch. It included some of the most recent events with security which the government was trying to cover up. It was interesting to find out how the process works. Enjoyed the filming locations. Was worth the purchase.

      Good action movie. It's amazing how many things happen in the government that no one knows. This gives us knowledge of what happens that we don't know. Good information.

      Wikileaks was something that really happened. This is a good look at the personality of the individual behind it all.
