Netflix’s The Trial of the Chicago 7 is the movie you need to stream this year


The Trial of the Chicago 7 is the latest movie from lauded TV showrunner Aaron Sorkin, whose previous film (and directorial debut), Molly’s Game, got something of a second wind on Netflix. That film was about someone running a poker game for rich people. Sorkin’s new movie picks far more sympathetic subjects: a group of counterculture figures and academics who protested the Democratic National Convention in 1968, and were brought up on charges leading to a landmark court case that gripped the nation. 

The protest descended into a riot – instigated by the Chicago police, as it was later recognized. In 1969, with Nixon entering the White House, attorney general John N Mitchell (played here by John Doman) pursues a federal case against the group for conspiracy to incite a riot, among other charges.
