- Trumbo: 14.10.16 (15)

Hollywood screenwriter Dalton Trumbo (Bryan Cranston) is celebrated for his work, but barely tolerated for his vocal communism.   Then, the Un-American Activities Committee goes into full effect, he and his fellow leftist writers are punished and exiled for their views.  "What makes the movie work are the lively performances, both from the supporting cast and from Cranston, who sheds the mimicry and pontificating of earlier scenes to turn Trumbo into a wry, self-deprecating and somewhat cheeky older man, even if he continued to stand up for what was right.

The joy of Trumbo is in the heroism of its subject and amazing performances from Cranston and Helen Mirren   (124 mins)
