Movie Review: Snowden brings new insight

A closer look at Edward Snowden and how he transformed the NSA

Jacksonville, Fla. – Snowden (Rated-R)

Based on the true story, 'Snowden' (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) shows Edward Snowden's life, before, during and after he made the decision to release proof that the U.S. government was secretly retaining information from hundreds of thousands of cellphone users, in addition to other personal information on the internet. You also get a chance to see a more gentle side of Snowden and his girlfriend. This film effectively brings closure to the story showing how the media and the U.S. government reacted after the release of information and reform to surveillance. Thought-provoking and insightful, this movie is worth a watch.
