This documentary portrait of blacklisted Hollywood screenwriter Dalton Trumbo was written by his son Christopher and directed by Peter Askin. Like their previous collaboration, the off-Broadway play "Trumbo: Red, White and Blacklisted," the film relies heavily on the letters Trumbo wrote during the 1950s, here read by noted actors Michael Douglas, Joan Allen, Donald Sutherland, Liam Neeson and Paul Giamatti. David Strathairn delivers Trumbo's famed 1970 speech to the Writers Guild of America, a summing up of the tumultuous times of the preceding decades, and a plea for understanding. DIR Peter Askin; PROD Will Battersby, Tory Tunnell, David Viola, Al Klingenstein. U.S., 2007, b&w/color, 96 min, DCP. RATED PG-13
