In this fascinating true story, Oscar nominated actor Bryan Cranston (Breaking Bad) portrays Dalton Trumbo, the successful Hollywood screenwriter who was blacklisted in 1947 by the studios under the direction of the infamous House Committee on Un-American Activities.
Holding strong to a belief in free speech and refusing to name “suspicious” friends, Trumbo was vilified in the communist witch-hunt that took place in America at the height of the Cold War. He was exiled professionally, sentenced to a year in prison for Contempt of Congress, and drawn into battle with the absurd Red-hating gossip columnist Hedda Hooper (Helen Mirren).
With an irrepressible creative talent, Trumbo would find his way back into Hollywood, writing several scripts under pseudonyms during his exile, including Roman Holiday, and winning two Academy Awards under an alias.
Trumbo is directed by Jay Roach. Stars Bryan Cranston and Helen Mirren both received Golden Globe nominations for their performances. Cranston has also received a BAFTA nomination for Best Actor. Trumbo is in cinemas Thursday 18 February.
