Enter our competition to win one of 5 double tickets being offered by Ciné 17 to knowitall.ch clients

Written by DreamWorks Pictures and directed by Bill Condon, THE FIFTH ESTATE is a dramatic new thriller based on real events in which WikiLeaks founder, Julian Assange, (played by Benedict Cumberbatch) and his colleague, Daniel Domscheit-Berg, (played by Daniel Brühl) team up to become underground watchdogs of the privileged and powerful.

On a shoestring, they create a platform that allows whistle-blowers to anonymously leak covert data, shining a light on the dark recesses of government secrets and corporate crimes.  But when Assange and Berg gain access to the biggest trove of confidential intelligence documents in U.S. history, they battle each other and give rise to one of the most defining questions of our time: what are the costs of keeping secrets in a free society, and what are the costs of exposing them?

In spite of the huge number of new film releases on offer this Christmas, Ciné 17 has been fortunate to catch this excellent new film and is, in fact, the only cinema in French-speaking Switzerland to offer this movie, which will be screened in its original English version, with subtitles.  The film is currently being aired on Fridays and Saturdays as a late-night show at 23h45, as well as Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays at 12h15 (outside the holiday period, during which FROZEN will be screened instead). Check the Ciné 17 website for exact dates, as the weekly program changes every Wednesday.
