THE FIFTH ESTATE BLU-RAY + DVD + DIGITAL COPY HD *NEW & SEALED* French version also included
Bill Condon's thriller THE FIFTH ESTATE charts the creation of WikiLeaks by the ambitious and arguably ethically dubious Julian Assange, played by Benedict Cumberbatch. The movie opens with Assange hiring Daniel Domscheit-Berg (Daniel Br�hl), a fellow tech whiz, to help him keep his new website operational. The site gave whistleblowers an entirely anonymous platform to share classified documents, and soon the pair find themselves in possession of information that will bring down a corrupt bank. As their power and influence grows, they must consider teaming with established media sources, especially when they are sent documents that would reveal ultra-sensitive state secrets from some of the world's most-powerful governments. THE FIFTH ESTATE screened at the 2013 Toronto International Film Festival., Director Bill Condon present this take on controversial hacker Julian Assange with this DreamWorks release starring Benedict Cumberbatch and INGLORIOUS BASTERDS' Daniel Bruhl.
