Trumbo Review - AVClub

AVClub: Trumbo would like to remind everyone that Roman Holiday screenwriter Dalton Trumbo was a genius. Specifically, he was a genius whose scripts won multiple Academy Awards, and whose talent was so profound that Hollywood types came skulking to him, hoping for hits, even once he was blacklisted during the Red Scare of the 1940s and ’50s. Trumbo’s writing was so terrific, the film emphasizes, that it outweighed his caustic personality, his unfashionable politics, and the career-threatening dangers of working with him.
