Downloadable scripts – and a rebuttal to one of them

Scriptmag has provided a number of current scripts for download, including an astonishing denunciation of The Fifth Estate.





DreamWorks Animation:


  • The Fifth Estate
    This script has been posted by Wikileaks, together with a point-by-point rebuttal of what they claim are misrepresentations in the movie.
    They state:

“The film is fictional. Most of the events depicted never happened, or the people shown were not involved in them. It has real names, real places, and looks like it is covering real events, but it is still a dramatic and cinematic work, and it invents or shapes the facts to fit its narrative goals.

“The story of WikiLeaks does not end with The Fifth Estate. The film makes it look like WikiLeaks was finished in 2010. Three years later, WikiLeaks is still here, has been going from strength to strength, and the issues raised in 2010 are more urgent and relevant than ever.”
