Thanks to our generous friends at eOne Films, WeekendNotes has 10 in-season double passes to Trumbo to giveaway!

Directed by Jay Roach, the acclaimed drama stars Bryan Cranston and Helen Mirren, who both received Golden Globe nominations for their performances. Cranston has also received a BAFTA nomination for Best Actor.

In this fascinating true story, Oscar nominated actor Bryan Cranston (Breaking Bad) portrays Dalton Trumbo, the successful Hollywood screenwriter who was blacklisted in 1947 by the studios under the direction of the infamous House Committee on Un-American Activities. Holding strong to a belief in free speech and refusing to name "suspicious" friends, Trumbo was vilified in the communist witch-hunt that took place in America at the height of the Cold War.

He was exiled professionally, sentenced to a year in prison for Contempt of Congress, and drawn into battle with the absurd Red-hating gossip columnist Hedda Hooper (Helen Mirren). With an irrepressible creative talent, Trumbo would find his way back into Hollywood, writing several scripts under pseudonyms during his exile, including Roman Holiday, and winning two Academy Awards under alias.

To celebrate the release of Trumbo on Thursday, 18th February 2016, WeekendNotes subscribers have the chance to win an in-season double pass.

*To go into the draw, all you have to do is send an email titled 'Trumbo' to and let us know in 25 words or less why you want to see Trumbo. Please make sure to include your full name and mailing address so we can send you your prize!

  • 10 lucky winners will be drawn on Monday 15th February 2016 and their tickets will be mailed out on Wednesday 17th February 2016.

    For more information on Trumbo, check out the official website.

    Trumbo - only in cinemas from Thursday 18th February 2016.
