As part of their Films Up North series the Central Canada Film Group is presenting the Toronto International Film Festival movie Trumbo Thursday night. The group’s Collin Davis says he highly recommends seeing this film. He explains in 1947 Dalton Trumbo was Hollywood’s top screenwriter until he and other artists were jailed and blacklisted for their political beliefs. The film Trumbo recounts how Dalton used words and wit to win two Academy Awards and expose the absurdity and injustice of the communist blacklist which involved a lot of top names of the time on both sides of the fence like John Wayne, Kirk Douglas and Otto Preminger.
Trumbo will be shown Thursday night starting at 7:30 in the Hapnot Collegiate theatre. Admission is ten dollars.
