Trumbo is the story of a bad time in America. Being blacklisted from your job because of a belief. The story of standing up for his beliefs. Being jailed for not answering questions. Working without other people giving his secret away.
From some of the most famous films of the “golden era” of films were written by this persona non grata. A great story that needed to be told. Showing what America thought of a group of people that they thought were doing things that were against America. Does that sound familiar?
The successful career of 1940s screenwriter Dalton Trumbo comes to a crushing end when he and other Hollywood figures are blacklisted for their political beliefs. TRUMBO tells the story of his fight against the U.S. government and studio bosses in a war over words and freedom, which entangled everyone in Hollywood from Hedda Hopper and John Wayne to Kirk Douglas and Otto Preminger.
