    “The Fifth Estate” screenwriter Josh Singer sat down with Harvard Law School professor Charles Nesson (above right, with Singer) at the Brattle Theatre Wednesday night before an advance screening of the much-buzzed about film starring Benedict Cumberbatch as WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange. After the screening, an array of brainy boldfacers — including Lawrence Lessig, Jonathan Zittrain, Yochai Benkler, and Ethan Zuckerman — were scheduled to take part in a panel discussion moderated by NPR’s Sacha Pfeiffer.
