Trumbo (Movie Watch)

Dalton Trumbo’s remarkable journey from Hollywood royalty to blacklisted writer to Academy Award winner is brought to focus in Trumbo. Bringing into light in the writer’s own indelible words, the film features performances of some of his extraordinary letters, clips from his films, archival & contemporary interviews with those who knew him best. The film illustrates how one man’s unerring belief in the First Amendment and the power of the written word-plus a drink or two-empowered him to fight back after being blacklisted by HUAC. Forced to write underground, letter writing became the chief repository of Trumbo’s extraordinary talents, and they serve as a wonderfully entertaining testament to his boundless intellect, acerbic humor, and staggering resilience.
