On February 19, 7:30 at Quadra Community Centre, Friday Flicks presents Trumbo starring bryan Cranston.
In 1947, Dalton Trumbo was Hollywood’s top screenwriter until he and other artists were jailed and blacklisted for their political beliefs. Trumbo used words and wit to win two Academy Awards and expose the absurdity and injustice under the blacklist, which entangled everyone from gossip columnist Hedda Hopper to John Wayne, Kirk Douglas and Otto Preminger.
“...bracing and buoyant” “Cranston shows us there’s nothing retro about watching Trumbo in his glory, speaking truth to power.” Rolling Stone
