Description

The Oscar-winning director of Wall Street offers a "crisply drawn portrait of the world's most celebrated whistle-blower" in this original screenplay (The New York Times). From director and screenwriter Oliver Stone, Snowden examines the life and actions of one of the most polarizing figures in modern history. In 2013, Edward Snowden quietly leaves his job at the NSA and flies to Hong Kong to meet with journalists Glenn Greenwald and Ewen MacAskill, as well as filmmaker Laura Poitras, to expose the US government's secret-and shockingly extensive-cyber surveillance programs. A top security contractor with virtuoso programming skills, Snowden's monumental act has been called heroic, treasonous, and the most far-reaching security breach in US intelligence history. This official motion picture screenplay edition, written by Kieran Fitzgerald and Oliver Stone, includes a foreword by David Talbot and dozens of photos from the film that features Zachary Quinto, Tom Wilkinson, Melissa Leo, and Joseph Gordon-Levitt as Snowden.
