This Thursday the 5th, there will be a special screening of Trumbo at the Museum of the Moving Image. The screening will be accompanied by the man himself, Bryan Cranston and the Director of Trumbo, Jay Roach.
The movie is based on the life and career of screenwriter Dalton Trumbo (Bryan Cranston) as it comes to a crashing halt in the 1940's when Trumbo fell victim, like so many others in Hollywood at the time, to the blacklist. The story follows Trumbo's dismissal by Hollywood followed with the subsequent war between the Oscar-winning writer and the U.S Government. The war soon brought in other icons such as Hedda Hopper, John Wayne and Kirk Douglas to name a few.
Directed by Jay Roach (Meet the parents, The campaign), the film also stars Academy Award Winner Helen Mirren and John Goodman.
