Bryan Cranston gives an Oscar®-nominated performance as the legendary blacklisted author and screenwriter Dalton Trumbo. He was one of Tinseltown's busiest and most versatile screenwriters throughout the 1940s, but that ended abruptly with the House Un-American Activities Committee's Communist witch-hunt and Hollywood's subsequent blacklist. Undeterred, Trumbo persevered: he worked for cheap, using aliases and front writers, on dozens of screenplays through the '50s. Hit movies — even Oscar® winners — were made from his screenplays, emboldening Hollywood to finally break the blacklist in 1960. The exquisite cast includes Diane Lane, Elle Fanning, John Goodman, Louis C.K., Michael Stuhlbarg and Helen Mirren.
