Synopsis:
'Trumbo' is a portrait of Oscar-winning screenwriter Dalton Trumbo, A member of the infamous Hollywood Ten, he was first jailed before being forced into exile by Senator Joseph McCarthy's House Un-American Activities Committee (HUAC). By using several different pseudonyms Trumbo continued to write, and while in exile continued to produce widely-acclaimed and award-winning screenplays. During this time letter-writing became the repository of Trumbo's extraordinary talents, and these correspondences serve as a wonderfully entertaining testament to the need for self-expression, continued social and political engagement, and the durability of the human spirit.
Told through performances of some of these extraordinary letters by an award-winning cast of actors including, Joan Allen, Brian Dennehy, Michael Douglas, Paul Giamatti, Nathan Lane, Josh Lucas, Liam Neeson, David Strathairn and Donald Sutherland as well as archival and contemporary interviews and clips from his films, Trumbo illustrates how his unerring belief in the freedom of speech and the power of the written word motivated him to fight against political persecution.
