It must almost be Oscar season. We're starting to get trailers for the fall movies every day now, and that means a deluge of biopics about important people, right? In this one Bryan Cranston stars as the blacklisted screenwriter Dalton Trumbo, who wrote dozens of Hollywood movies in the 1950's that he was never given credit for until decades later. It looks a bit like an HBO movie to me, but the story is interesting, since there haven't really been too many films that explored the wild scandal of the Hollywood blacklist in the '50's. The House Un-American Activities Committee's dogged pursuit against Hollywood remains somewhat underknown history to a lot of people.
