Are there Lessons for Us?
Despite the fact that the United States and the Soviet Union had been allies during WWII, it wasn’t a smart move having anything to do with Communism in the late forties/early fifties- Trumbo certainly proves that point. With a magnificent and magnetic performance by Bryan Cranston (TV’s Breaking Bad) and an all-star supporting cast including such luminaries as Helen Mirren and John Goodman, we move from the House Un-American Activities Committee in 1947 through its consequences for the brilliant screenwriter Dalton Trumbo. Trumbo may not be a name you’re all that familiar with, and for good reason- he was blacklisted and unable to write under his own name, ultimately winning two Oscars for The Brave One and Spartacus.
