Before watching this film i did not know much about the NSA scandal, but after watching this film it open my eyes to things that i could not believe. You get to see why Snowden did this, and how he did this. There are a few scenes in which they have to talk in code so that he can stay hidden. Most of the time, Snowden is worried about his girlfriend and how his actions have affected her.
If you think you already know what happened think again. This is one move that will leave you on the edge of your seat.
