Trumbo (15)

USA, 2015, 124 mins. Dir. Jay Roach

Bryan Cranston (Breaking Bad, Drive) plays Dalton Trumbo, one of the ‘Hollywood Ten’ who were blacklisted due to their supposed (and actual) communist leanings.

With all of the necessary verve of a man Trumbo was the screenwriter of many Hollywood classics including Spartacus, Gun Crazy and Roman Holiday (some written openly, mostly under pseudonyms after he was excluded by the studios) and who did the majority of his composition inside the bath, cigarette in hand and Scotch within reach.

The supporting cast are more than his match, especially Helen Mirren’s gossip columnist Hedda Hopper, one of the chief collaborators with the communist witchhunt. A wry story of resilience that has pace and wit, Trumbo also has historical heft and resonance on its side.

‘A winning, lively film’
