“The most important and galvanizing political drama by an American filmmaker in years”—Variety. Academy Award-winning director Oliver Stone, who brought Platoon, Born on the Fourth of July, Wall Street and JFK to the big screen, tackles one of the most important and fascinating true stories of the 21st century. SNOWDEN, the politically-charged, pulse-pounding thriller starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Shailene Woodley, Nicholas Cage, Melissa Leo, Tom Wilkinson, Zachary Quinto, Rhys Ifans and Joelly Richardson, reveals the incredible untold personal story of Edward Snowden, the polarizing figure who exposed shocking illegal surveillance activities by the NSA and became one of the most wanted men in the world. He is considered a hero by some, and a traitor by others. No matter which you believe, the epic story of why he did it, who he left behind, and how he pulled it off makes for one of the most compelling films of the year. R. 134 Min.
