Hey guys, long time no see!
Recently, my class has watched the movie “The Fifth Estate”, and discussed it in class.
I think that the point of the movie was to enlighten the world about WikiLeaks, and what Julian Assange did. Yes, he did spread the government’s secret documents, but he also make the world open their eyes for government secrecy. I think the teacher made us watch is because it is a movie about something important. WikiLeaks points out that the government keeps many secrets, and shows how much power the government has. Discussing the movie helps everyone understand the movie and its message better.
There are many things that we can learn from this movie, for example that everyone has secrets, even the people we trust the most. Julian kept secrets from Daniel, the government kept secrets from the people, and your best friend might keep secrets from you. The question is if these secrets are being kept for the good or the bad.
