TRUMBO In the 1940s, Dalton Trumbo (Bryan Cranston) is one of the highest paid screenwriters in the world, penning movie classics including the Oscar-nominated Kitty Foyle and Thirty Seconds Over Tokyo. A fixture on the Hollywood social scene, and a political activist supporting labor unions, equal pay and civil rights, Trumbo and his colleagues are subpoenaed to testify in front of the House Un-American Activities Committee (HUAC) as part of its sweeping probe into communist activity in the U.S. Trumbo’s refusal to answer the congressmen’s questions lands him in a federal prison and earns him the eternal enmity of powerful anti-communist gossip columnist Hedda Hopper (Helen Mirren). Trumbo’s acclaimed career comes to a crushing halt in the late 1940s when he and other Hollywood figures are blacklisted for their political beliefs. Directed by Jay Roach, Trumbo tells the story of the Oscar-winning writer’s war with the U.S. government and studio bosses over words and freedom, which entangled Hollywood icons from Hedda Hopper and John Wayne to Kirk Douglas and Otto Preminger.An astonishing portrait of an often forgotten chapter of American history, Trumbo is directed by Jay Roach (Game Change, Meet the Parents) from a script by John McNamara (Aquarius, Prime Suspect), based on the book Dalton Trumbo by Bruce Cook. Feature: A Film About The Right To Free Speech
