The Fifth Estate

Air Date: 10/25/13 The movie "The Fifth Estate" came out this weekend.  The story begins as WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange (Benedict Cumberbatch) and his colleague Daniel Domscheit-Berg (Daniel Brühl) team up to become underground watchdogs. On a shoestring, they create a platform that allows whistle-blowers to anonymously leak covert data, shining a light on the dark recesses of government secrets and corporate crimes. Soon, they are breaking more hard news than the world's most legendary media organizations combined. But when Assange and Berg gain access to the biggest trove of confidential intelligence documents in U.S. history, they have to ask the difficult question of the consequences of publishing this information and not?   The film has been a box office bust thus far, hear Robin's take on the movie and attendance on this weeks film review.
