The film Hollywood was too afraid to make

With ingredients such as government surveillance, international intrigue and a whistleblower who fearlessly defies American authorities, it was only a matter of time before Oliver Stone made a movie about the Edward Snowden case. Featuring Joseph Gordon-Levitt as the titular lead and actors such as Shailene Woodley, Nicolas Cage, Melissa Leo and Zachary Quinto in supporting roles, SNOWDEN is a political thriller that lets Stone do what Stone does best. Clearly inspired by his subject’s courage, the veteran director delivers his best and most relevant film in many years.
