An image from Trumbo

Absolutely sterling, compelling drama about the notorious Hollywood blacklist of the 1940s and '50s. If you are vaguely aware of his reputation -- or of the noble stand Trumbo took during a dark time in American history -- then you'll be delighted with this biopic that does justice to screenwriter Dalton Trumbo. The film also explores the social and economic state of things at the time and how it affects Trumbo and his personal life. Trumbo benefits from exceptionally good acting from Cranston, as well as a compelling story, sets and costumes. A great viewing for both history and movie buffs alike.
