About the Movie

Academy Award®-winning director Oliver Stone (JFK, Born on the Fourth of July) tackles the most important true story of the 21st century. Snowden, the politically-charged thriller reveals the incredible untold personal story of Edward Snowden, the controversial figure who exposed shocking illegal surveillance activities by the National Security Agency and became one of the most wanted men in the world. A hero to some and a traitor to others, the provocative story of what led him to that fateful decision makes for one of the most compelling stories in recent history.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: As Snowden, Gordon-Levitt is so muted, so cloistered, that it can be easy to miss that it's a very good performance. – Tom Shone, Newsweek, Sep 22, 2016

Rotten: Stone's flashy filmmaking, including grand set pieces in enormous secret facilities, can't conceal his flat, thin, psychology-free depiction of a modest and self-sacrificing hero who single-handedly changed the politics of our time. – Richard Brody, New Yorker, Sep 26, 2016

Fresh: It's a forthright attempt to engage with this fascinating, opaque figure and show what it cost him personally. – Peter Bradshaw, Guardian, Dec 8, 2016

Fresh: Partiality is the heel in this Achilles film; though to this Achilles film's credit, it also outruns, as storytelling, the tortoise forebodings we might have had about a true-life plot so cerebral and cyber-centric. – Nigel Andrews, Financial Times, Dec 8, 2016
