Talk: Trumbo

Director Jay Roach and actor Michael Stuhlbarg stopped by Google to discuss their movie Tumbo. About Tumbo: In 1947, Dalton Trumbo (Bryan Cranston) 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 under the blacklist, which entangled everyone from gossip columnist Hedda Hopper (Helen Mirren) to John Wayne, Kirk Douglas and Otto Preminger. The film also stars Michael Stuhlbarg, Diane Lane, John Goodman, Louis CK, and Elle Fanning.
