This Friday the Oscar- and BAFTA-nominated Trumbo opens across the UK, and we’ve teamed up with eOne to offer you the chance to win a Roberts Revival DAB Radio and some exclusive Trumbo goodies.
Director: Jay Roach.
Starring: Bryan Cranston, Diane Lane, Helen Mirren. USA 2015. 124 mins.
Bryan Cranston continues his brilliant recent run, this time as a blacklisted screenwriter in Trumbo, one of Hollywood’s most intriguing untold stories. The author of Oscar-winning screenplays for The Brave One and Roman Holiday, Dalton Trumbo was one of the highest-paid screenwriters of the 1940s. But in an age of paranoia about ‘reds under the bed’, his left-wing beliefs made him a target of the American government’s anti-Communist witch-hunt, ultimately landing him in jail and destroying his career. Frozen out of Tinsel Town, Trumbo was forced to write in the shadows and watch others collect the Oscars he was due – until finally Kirk Douglas used his A-list credentials to redeem him by naming him on the script for Spartacus. This account of Trumbo’s life and times is a richly gripping drama about the dark side of Hollywood’s golden age.
To celebrate the release of the film, one lucky winner will win a Roberts Revival RD60 DAB Digital Radio, Royal Burgundy, Trumbo poster signed by Bryan Cranston and John Goodman and a copy of the book. Two runners-up will also win a copy of the book.
Simply book to watch Trumbo at a Picturehouse Cinema before 12 February 2016 to be in with a chance of winning.
We’ll pick one lucky winner and two runners up at random from all pre-bookings for Trumbo and will email the confirmation by 19 February 2016.
Subject to Picturehouse Cinemas standard terms and conditions.
Trumbo opens nationwide from Friday 5 February.
