Mini Review - The Fifth Estate

The Fifth Estate (out Nov 14) provides an even-handed perspective on the life of Julian Assange and the creation of Wikileaks. Benedict Cumberbatch is superb in the leading role. Unfortunately, if offers nothing that wasn't already put forward (in much more convincing detail) in the doco We Steal Secrets that was released 4 months ago. Those already familiar with Assange will get very little from this. Grade: C+.
