Assange seems far from convinced. Even on a cosmetic level, WikiLeaks has gone on the offensive, positing the founder does not, as depicted in the film, dye his hair white.
Benedict Cumberbatch expands his 'Estate' as WikiLeaks founder
British actor Benedict Cumberbatch, whose BBC portrayal of the famous detective has ushered him into Hollywood's Big Leagues, has more films nearing release than he has time to talk about. In turn, he's gone full stop Sherlock, spouting data dumps of information about, at the present moment, his new WikiLeaks film, The Fifth Estate (in theaters Friday).
Drawing the line on transparency of the individual's information, he grants, is far more complicated. "But primarily what WikiLeaks did was revolutionary and wonderful. And I completely get why it terrified people. I have empathy for the State Department and other people whose houses were suddenly in complete and utter disarray. Everything they had known, all the structures and status quo, just vanished."

The film, while not wholly kind to Assange, certainly hoists the flag for his core principles. But it also has raised the curtain enough to make him squirm.

Despite rabid fan and critical reception to his portrayal of Star Trek Into Darkness' chilling new villain, The Fifth Estate is Cumberbatch's biggest test at the box office to date. In the film, he dissolves into a remarkable impression of Assange, camouflaging his cut glass cheekbones, assuming a reedy, halting Australian pitch and covering his curls with a white wig.

(To date, Assange has only had access to the film's script.) WikiLeaks says the movie is based on the two most "toxic" books on the organization on the market.
"I wasn't into it to make (Assange) either a villain or a saint. In my opinion it should be about presenting the rich complexity of him as a whole," says Cumberbatch, who adds that he's "very much for the (WikiLeaks) movement. I think it's a very healthy sign of democracy that we can hold people who are in positions of power, and institutions who are in power over us, to account.
