A fascinating portrait of one of the most emblematic figures of Hollywood’s Golden Age, TRUMBO stars Bryan Cranston (Breaking Bad) as prolific screenwriter Dalton Trumbo.

In 1947, the successful career of Trumbo comes to a crushing end when he and other Hollywood figures are blacklisted for their political ideologies. Risking everything, Trumbo refuses to renounce his beliefs, and pays the price for his commitment to freedom. The studios refuse to hire him, the US government sentence him to a year in prison, and the conflict soon entangles everyone in Hollywood – from gossip columnist Hedda Hopper (Helen Mirren), to actors John Wayne and Kirk Douglas, and director Otto Preminger. With an irrepressible creative talent, Trumbo would find his way back onto the big screen, writing several scripts under pseudonyms during his exile, including Roman Holiday and The Brave One, both of which won Academy Awards under aliases.

Featuring an exceptional lead performance by Cranston, TRUMBO is a gripping, spirited drama that sheds light on one of the darkest chapters in Hollywood history.
