Behind the Scenes: Trumbo with Bryan Cranston and Helen Mirren

Posted on October 23, 2015 at 8:00 am

Screenwriter Dalton 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 recounts how Dalton used words and wit to win two Academy Awards (under pseudonyms) and expose the absurdity and injustice of the blacklist, which entangled everyone from gossip columnist Hedda Hopper (Helen Mirren) to John Wayne, Edward G. Robinson, Kirk Douglas, and Otto Preminger.
