Bryan Cranston continues his brilliant recent run, this time as a blacklisted screenwriter in Trumbo, one of Hollywood’s most intriguing untold stories. The author of Oscar-winning screenplays for The Brave One and Roman Holiday, Dalton Trumbo was one of the highest-paid screenwriters of the 1940s. But in an age of paranoia about ‘reds under the bed’, his left-wing beliefs made him a target of the American government’s anti-Communist witch-hunt, ultimately landing him in jail and destroying his career. Frozen out of Tinsel Town, Trumbo was forced to write in the shadows and watch others collect the Oscars he was due – until finally Kirk Douglas used his A-list credentials to redeem him by naming him on the script for Spartacus. This account of Trumbo’s life and times is a richly gripping drama about the dark side of Hollywood’s golden age.
