Trumbo (2015)

US 124m, Colou
Director: Jay Roach; Cast: Bryan Cranston, Diane Lane, Helen Mirren, Louis C.K., Elle Fanning, John Goodman, Michael Stuhlbarg

trumboTrumbo is a surprisingly amusing biographical drama about the very serious events surrounding the life of blacklisted Hollywood screenwriter Dalton Trumbo, who was accused and convicted of being a communist during America’s witch hunt for “un-American” activities. Though many of the details of Hollywood’s blacklist are well-known, it is Cranston’s brilliant performance as the defiant Trumbo which sets this production apart from previous versions of this story. Trumbo also serves as an important reminder that alternative opinions do matter, and that it is everyone’s right to have them without the fear of persecution (Klaus Ming January 2016).
