Oliver Stone and the Cast of ‘Snowden’ Discuss the Challenges of Tackling a Historic Decade

[Editor’s Note: This post is presented in partnership with Spectrum. Catch up on this year’s Awards Season contenders and the latest films On Demand. Today’s flashback winner is “Snowden.”]

The opening titles of “Snowden” explain that the film dramatizes events from 2004 to 2013, but the film was clearly designed to speak to audiences years after that.

Snowden” is the latest effort from polarizing filmmaker Oliver Stone, who finds himself back in familiar territory, in a firmly political realm. It’s the story behind Edward Snowden’s rise through the CIA before his 2013 whistleblowing efforts, all the way up through the events detailed in Laura Poitras’ documentary “Citizenfour.”

In addition to tackling the timeline that took Snowden from army recruit to figure of global import, “Snowden” contextualizes the full scope of his revelations.

True Blood’s Stephen Moyer And Anna Paquin Reunite For The Parting Glass

20 January 2017 3:45 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Like many actors before him, True Blood‘s Stephen Moyer’s been bitten by the directing bug. He’ll make his feature film directorial debut with The Parting Glass, a dark family drama which will give him another chance to work with Anna Paquin, who’s set to star in the film.

Details are limited at the moment, but The Parting Glass‘s logline tells us that Moyer’s upcoming film will follow a grieving family following the death of a sister. From there, they’ll collect the remnants of her lost life as they attempt to paint a portrait of her existence. It doesn’t exactly sound like the most uplifting material then, but it’s got us intrigued nonetheless.

In addition to Paquin, the film is also set to star Ed Asner, Cynthia Nixon, Melissa Leo, Rhys Ifans, Paul Gross and Denis O’Hare, who wrote the screenplay. »
