Trumbo: The story of a blacklisted Hollywood screenwriter
The successful career of Hollywood screenwriter, Dalton Trumbo, comes to an end when he and other Hollywood figures are blacklisted in the 1940s for their political ideologies.

- Suite Française: a romantic World War II drama
- How I brought down sporting legend and drug cheat Lance Armstrong
Risking everything, Trumbo refuses to renounce his beliefs, and pays the price for his commitment to freedom.
The studios refuse to hire him, the US government sentence him to a year in prison, and the conflict soon entangles everyone in Hollywood – from gossip columnist Hedda Hopper (Helen Mirren), to actors John Wayne and Kirk Douglas, and director Otto Preminger.
TRUMBO features a stellar cast including Bryan Cranston, Diane Lane, Louis C.K., Elle Fanning, John Goodman and Michael Stuhlbarg.
'Bryan Cranston finally translates his critical acclaim for “Breaking Bad” into an Oscar-caliber performance in darkly comic Trumbo, playing an eloquent, witty screenwriter who bucked the Hollywood blacklist and triumphed.' - New York Post
