Snowden, directed by Oliver Stone, follows NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden as he travels the globe to leak classified NSA information.
Snowden is directed by Oliver Stone who co-wrote the script with Kieran Fitzgerald (The Homesman), based on both Luke Harding’s The Snowden Files: The Inside Story of the World’s Most Wanted Man and Time of the Octopus, the novel from Snowden’s Russian lawyer Anatoly Kucherena. The story follows NSA whistleblower Snowden (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) as he moves from Hawaii to Hong Kong where he met documentary filmmaker Laura Poitras (director of the Oscar-winning Citizenfour) and journalist Glenn Greenwald to hand over top-secret NSA documents, all before seeking asylum in Russia. Scott Eastwood, Rhys Ifans, Timothy Olyphant and more star in the film. Open Road was originally planning to release the film last December, but delayed it until this year.
