With dialogue almost as snappy and effervescent as the jazzy score, Trumbo and crew subvert and foil the enemy. The mix of drama and humor works well here and comedic backgrounds of many of Trumbo’s stars becomes an incredible asset, adding almost perfect timing to many a line-reading. – Consequence of Sound

 Trumbo is timely in its portrayal of a moment when political speech is dangerously charged, yet unabashedly old-fashioned in the sincerity of its storytelling. – Los Angeles Times

EXCLUSIVE PODCAST: Theodore Shapiro On His Score For Academy Award Nominated ‘Trumbo’ Film

Lakeshore Records sat down with Theodore Shapiro, composer of Trumbo, the Academy Award®- and Golden-Globe®-nominated film about Dalton Trumbo, the celebrated Hollywood screenwriter whose principled refusal to name names to the House Un-American Activities Committee (HUAC) earned him 13 years in purgatory as a blacklisted writer.

Theodore talks about his collaboration with Trumbo director Jay Roach and how important it was to preserve the legacy and spirit of Dalton Trumbo through various aspects of scoring the film.  “Orchestra for Trumbo was 41 players: it was 31 strings plus brass, piano and harp…  It was really critically important that we do this through the union and support our local musicians who are so incredible.”  Hear the interview on Soundcloud below.
