A top Hollywood screenwriter battles the blacklist and wins two Academy Awards.


Why watch this film?

Dalton Trumbo was one of the great screenwriters of the end of the Golden Age of Hollywood, having signed films such as 'Spartacus', 'Exodus' and 'The Princess and the Commoner'. However, during McCarthyism and the alleged "witch hunt" in the entertainment industry, Trumbo ended up on the list of professionals prohibited from being hired by the studios. This movie tells this story, with Bryan Cranston ('Breaking Bad') playing the title role. Thus, we see the harmful effects of the witch hunt lived in the Cold War, the impact on Trumbo's career and how he managed to circumvent these difficulties. The cast is star-studded and, in addition to Cranston, it features Diane Lane, Helen Mirren, Louis C.K., Elle Fanning, John Goodman and many others. Recommended for fans of the seventh art, but also for those who want to watch and reflect on the past and even the future.
