    Academy Award®-winning director Oliver Stone, who brought Platoon, Born on the Fourth of July, Wall Street
    and JFK to the big screen, tackles the most important and fascinating true story of the 21st century. Snowden,
    the politically-charged, pulse-pounding thriller starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Shailene Woodley, reveals
    the incredible untold personal story of Edward Snowden, the polarizing figure who exposed shocking illegal
    surveillance activities by the NSA and became one of the most wanted men in the world. He is considered a
    hero by some, and a traitor by others. No matter which you believe, the epic story of why he did it, who he
    left behind, and how he pulled it off makes for one of the most compelling films of the year.

    I wonder if this film will address the hardware situation supposedly created by "Snowden".

    The hardware aspect of the story doesn't usually see a whole lot of light.

    The motivations and the money.

    Follow the money.

    None of it matters though. The government knows the math is uncrackable. The effort required to brute force things they want isn't worth it. Now they just lock you up because you won't give out passwords. They always use the child porn angle too because it angers the public and they feel your rights are null and void if you're labeled a pedo. This guys entire computer was scanned and not a single trace of porn was found but they locked him up because he won't show them two of his external drives.

    He gave up any semblance of a normal life to expose that our government was horribly violating our 4th ammendment rights.

    Yeah, he's the bad guy.
