Spring Programme: Trumbo

Mon 09 May
8:00pm to 10:15pm
£2 + Booking Fee

In 1947, Dalton Trumbo (Bryan Cranston) was Hollywood's top screenwriter until he and other artists were jailed and blacklisted for their political beliefs. Trumbo recounts how Dalton used words and wit to win two Academy Awards and expose the absurdity and injustice under the blacklist, which entangled everyone from gossip columnist Hedda Hopper (Helen Mirren) to John Wayne, Kirk Douglas and Otto Preminger.

Nominated for an Oscar®.

'Steeped in cigarette smoke and pinko-paranoia, Trumbo delivers a suitably noirish take on one of Hollywood's less glorious eras.' - Elliott Noble, Sky Movies
