The NSA's illegal surveillance techniques are leaked to the public by one of the agency's employees, Edward Snowden, in the form of thousands of classified documents distributed to the press.
The real Lindsay Mills appears in the movie entering the cafeteria, right before Snowden meets Lindsay for the first time.
Laura Poitras: This is the only alligator.
Glenn Greenwald: Four minutes past. We walk in one minute. He was clear on that.
Laura Poitras: He's coming.
Glenn Greenwald: No, he is too young to have that kind of access.
Glenn Greenwald: Uh, what time does the restaurant open?
Edward Snowden: Noon. But the food is a bit too spicy. This way...
When Snowden copies the files to the memory card he first selects and copies one folder, and a pop up box appears showing progress as you would expect. He then selects all the other folders and drags them to the memory card causing a myriad of copying in progress boxes to appear. While no doubt intended to increase the dramatic tension, selecting and copying multiple folders in this way would only generate one progress box for the entire operation, the only way the multiple boxes would be seen was if each folder was copied as a separate drag and drop operation, not as he did in the scene as a multiple drag and drop. The number of copy in progress boxes also appears to be significantly more than the 13 folders that he has chosen to copy even if they were done individually..
