You are invited to a Movies that Matter Special Screening of the dramatic new thriller, The Fifth Estate on Tuesday, January 28 at 7 PM in the Otis Forum.  Based on real events, The Fifth Estate reveals the quest of  Wikileaks' founder Julian Assange (Benedict Cumberbatch) to expose the deceptions and corruptions of power, turning his Internet upstart into an organization where whistleblowers could anonymously leak classified information - and did!

 

Our special guest speaker will be The Fifth Estate screenwriter Josh Singer (Law & Order, The West Wing) for a Q & A after the film which will be moderated by Movies that Matter producers Judy Arthur and Perri Chasin.

 

"First-Rate Thriller"  Tom Carson, GQ
“As nervy and as excitable as the trade that it depicts”  Anthony Lane, New Yorker
" Intelligent, dynamic!”  Lisa Kennedy, Denver Post
“Cumberbatch is as close as you’ll get to Assange without being arrested”  David Bradley, Rip it Up

 

The Movies that Matter Special Screening Series is produced by LAS Faculty Perri Chasin and Mentor Faculty Judy Arthur in association with Otis Student Activities.

 

See you at the movies!
