Hollywood blacklisted him…but he had the last word.

Bozeman Film Society continues it’s lively, independent film season on Tuesday, February 9th at 7:30PM with must-see film TRUMBO. Bryan Cranston, garnering numerous nominations including an Academy Award for Best Actor, portrays the richly entertaining and notorious Dalton Trumbo, one of the greatest screenwriters in cinema. In 1947, Trumbo was Hollywood’s top screenwriter until he and other artists were jailed and blacklisted for their political beliefs. TRUMBO (directed by Jay Roach) recounts how Dalton used words and wit to win two Academy Awards and expose the absurdity and injustice of the blacklist, which entangled everyone from gossip columnist Hedda Hopper (wickedly delightful Helen Mirren) to John Wayne, Kirk Douglas and Otto Preminger. TRUMBO also features John Goodman, Elle Fanning, Louis C.K. and Diane Lane. Rated R (for language, including sexual reference,) the film runs 124 minutes.

Philadelphia Inquirer film critic Steven Rea calls it “… a period piece full of colorful characters, natty costumes, jaunty music.”

Tickets $8.75/GA; $8.50/SR & ST (plus fees.)
