    The misleading documentary Trumbo paints a golden nimbus of holiness around the onetime highest-paid screenwriter in Hollywood, Dalton Trumbo, an on-the-record hater of democracy, defender of authoritarian rule and avowed Communist.

    Ironically, Dalton Trumbo always had the last word even though his written words were banned because of his politics. Blacklisted andIronically, Dalton Trumbo always had the last word even though his written words were banned because of his politics. Blacklisted and imprisoned , this is his struggle back to the top of his first love -screenwriting- bringing us some of Hollywood’s best such as Spartacus, Exodus and Roman Holiday. “Trumbo” relies on its words and as in “Spotlight” an exceptional cast delivers including Louis C.K., Elle Fanning, Diane Lane and John Goodman. More so, Helen Mirren chills as Hedda Hopper “trumps” an industry rallying her readers with a smear campaign and Bryan Cranston’s oscar- worthy performance is the man who walked the walk and talked the talk.
