15 classification Trumbo


Ents24 Rating


Genre: Drama
Director: Jay Roach
Running time: 124 mins

Trumbo is a historical biopic about Hollywood screenwriter Dalton Trumbo. In the 1940s, Trumbo (Bryan Cranston) was one of the highest paid screenwriters in Hollywood when he and nine others were called to testify in front of the House Un-American Activities Committee on accusations of involvement with Communist agents and sympathisers. After serving 11 months in 1950 for refusing to cooperate with the investigation, Trumbo and his fellow activists found themselves blacklisted and unable to get work in Hollywood. Determined to expose the absurdity of the blacklist, Trumbo set about convincing producers, directors and actors to allow him to write for them under an assumed name. With a top cast including Helen Mirren as gossip columnist Hedda Hopper, Louis C.K. as Arlen Hird and Dean O'Gorman as Kirk Douglas, Trumbo recounts a compelling period of Hollywood history.

pg classification Dad's Army


Ents24 Rating


Genre: War / Comedy
Director: Oliver Parker
Running time: 100 mins

A relative smorgasbord of British acting talent convenes for a revival of popular sitcom Dad's Army. In 1944, World War II is reaching its climax as the allied forces prepare to invade France and defeat the German army, but in Britain the morale of the Home Guard is low. When MI5 discover that a message has been transmitted from Walmington-On-Sea to Berlin, it falls to Captain Mainwaring's (Toby Jones) platoon (Bill Nighy, Tom Courtenay, Michael Gambon, Blake Harrison, Daniel Mays and Bill Paterson) to locate the suspected spy and save they day. Will newly arrived journalist Rose Winters (Catherine Zeta Jones) fall under suspicion? While there is no doubting the calibre of cast, it seems an untimely outing for this well worn troupe of characters.
