About the movie

What was intended to be a peaceful protest at the 1968 Democratic National Convention turned into a violent clash with police and the National Guard. The organizers of the protest — including Abbie Hoffman, Jerry Rubin, Tom Hayden and Bobby Seale — were charged with conspiracy to incite a riot and the trial that followed was one of the most notorious in history.

Excellent movie that gets your temper going multiple times throughout the movie and even more when you are reminded that it is based on a true story!

An actors' showcase enlivened by its topical fact-based story, The Trial of the Chicago 7 plays squarely -- and compellingly -- to Aaron Sorkin's strengths.

This was captivating, difficult to watch & moving. Great acting and some fun punchlines inbetween the seriousness.

This movie really took me by surprise and despite its length of +2 hours I was captivated from start to finish! It’s based on a true story (my favorite kind of movie) and touches upon a really important subject of free speech and the right to protest. As the movie unfolded it really reminded me a lot of what’s been happening in USA with all the BLM protests and how the government is trying to silence people. Race also plays a big role in the movie. Only made it feel even more relevant today despite depicting the 60’s! The writer is Aaron Sorkin (West Wing, Moneyball and more) and you can tell! The dialogue is phenomenal, very witty and clever. Lastly the acting is AMAZING! Sascha Baron Cohen, Joseph Gordon Lewitt, Eddie Redmayne and more! WATCH IT! But you gotta pay attention
