California, the 1940s. Dalton Trumbo is one of the richest, most successful Hollywood screenwriters, known today to the whole world as the author of “Roman Holiday” and “Spartacus.” He never suspected that the “Hollywood Ten” blacklist actually existed until he himself wound up on it in 1947, owing to his Communist views, and got kicked out of the ‘dream factory.’ This is the story of his fight with the Hollywood system, the American government, and the studio bosses of the McCarthy era.
This is a biopic about the famous 1940s Hollywood screenwriter, Dalton Trumbo, who wrote his best-known, Oscar-winning screenplay while in hiding behind another writer’s name. Many celebrities were dragged into the campaign against him and his fight for freedom of choice during the ‘Red Panic’ — from actors John Wayne and Kirk Douglas to the director Otto Preminger. For the title role, Bryan Cranston, the star of “Breaking Bad,” received a 2016 Oscar nomination (Best Actor).
