Traitor, patriot, or simply a key witness to the dark secrets of the global chessboard? Few people have monopolized the attention of international media in recent years as Edward Snowden, a former NSA employee who leaked classified documents of the National Security Agency to the press in 2013. Snowden's almost inconceivable revelations about an international surveillance network organized by the USA caused an earthquake in international relations, with tremors reaching the upper echelons of power in the superpower's allies.

Part biography, part spy thriller based on fact, "Snowden" is the work of a director with proven credentials in the dramatization of international historical events and the lives of several controversial political figures of our time. Joseph Gordon-Levitt plays the leading role of a fugitive who is number one in the most wanted list of a country that continues to demand his extradition in order to be tried for high treason. N. S.
