TRUMBO is a biopic about a Hollywood screenwriter who was imprisoned and blacklisted for his political beliefs in the 1940s and 1950s.

Language

There is use of strong language ('f**k'), as well as milder terms, including 'son of a bitch', 'piss off', 'shit' and 'bastard'. There are also uses of the racist terms 'kike' and 'negro'.

Further issues include: some mild and undetailed sex references; a scene in which a man smashes up an office with a baseball bat, threatening but not hurting people around him; a couple of scenes showing the main character taking benzedrine pills, the use of which is shown to have a negative impact on his mood and his family relationships.

There is also frequent cigarette smoking, in keeping with the 1940s and 1950s period setting.
