Traitor, visionary – or something in-between?

It’s hardly an exaggeration to call WikiLeaks the most influential and important journalistic project of our time. In THE FIFTH ESTATE we get a fictionalized account of the story of this controversial organization and its enigmatic figurehead Julian Assange. With Benedict Cumberbatch delivering a highly memorable performance in the role of Assange, director Bill Condon offers a nuanced take on a man who is often cast as either a traitor or a visionary folk hero.
