As someone who’s not American, it so beautifully portrayed a part of American history and in such a digestible way. Plus Eddie Redmayne’s accent alone is reason enough to give it a watch

Consiglio di leggersi due info a riguardo prima di iniziare il film, perché è fatto molto bene ma si rischia di non capire qualche pezzo durante la visione se non si è a conoscenza degli eventi fin da subito. Del resto recitato bene e avvincente!

Man the insights were very hard to take. The contempt of court and anti-civil right movement, the intrusion of the government on the act. Man that was just more than a true story. And it all reminded me of our movement during the independence led by millions of freedom fighters of our country India. I'm still thrilled by it, and stunned at very moment if to recall all that at once. This movie is by far one of the best and the most truest cinematic form of a court drama. You should definitely watch this gem before you die. This movie isn't just a movie, it was an emotion and everything what the people had in 60s, the art of storytelling was above brilliant, the cinematography and the cut scenes were just so true to reality, the acting was just phenomenal man ! Independence and freedom didn't came cheap to us. Millions of people have fought to their lives to get it and had suffered a long cause for it. I have a strong belief in our institution because it was made to serve justice if convicted wrongly by the law.

Fantastisk film! Vanvittig samling af kompetente skuespillere, som alle sammen spiller helt perfekt og man er tilpas nok investeret i dem alle sammen uden at det bliver for rodet. Utrolig spændende sag som jeg ikke vidste meget om i forvejen. Man får bestemt opbygget en indre vrede løbende gennem filmen, wow en historie

Really loved this film. Super interesting topic that I knew little about, incredible cast and just so well put together - there are a lot of characters to follow but it's not confusing and you feel invested in them all.

I got to know about 60s-era Anti-war activities in Chicago. Keeping the historical part aside, as a movie I really enjoyed watching it. The story telling is amazing, blended with humor, suspence and everything you need to enjoy a good cinema.

All the Sorkin screenwriting magic. A great courtroom drama even if you don’t like courtroom dramas. Great performances and dynamic pacing. Also, so so so relevant!!

With this film, I truly wasn’t sure what to expect going into it. I’ll start with my few negative comments on this one. First off, the sheer length of this film seems too extensive. Secondly, the dialogue is rough and it seems as though points were reiterated time and time again. On a more positive note, this film does a phenomenal job of showing the emotions of every person in this film; from the defendants, the prosecution team, the judge, and even the jury. I enjoyed this film a lot, but I took this as a learning opportunity to ensure that I do what these folks did in 1968: always watch what the government is doing, and stand up for what you believe is wrong.

Loved this. Takes you on a journey, feeling how unjust it is throughout. Really powerful story and a bit depressing how components are still present today.

One of the finest Netflix original movie of recent times. Sasha Baron Cohen is slowly becoming one of my favourite actors.

En virkelig godt skrevet og velspillet retssagsfilm med et fantastisk cast! Især Eddie Redmayne og Sascha Baron Cohen spiller genialt, men hele rollelisten gør det fremragende og med et godt manuskript i baghånden. Samtidig er filmen handlingsmættet og godt klippet. En fornøjelse at se!
