Review: The Trial of the Chicago 7

The Trial of the Chicago 7, streaming on Netflix, is a movie based on the infamous 1969 trial of men charged with conspiracy and intention of inciting riots at the Democratic National Convention ’68. But there was a sentence that one of the accused, Abbie Hoffman, utters that reflects how, those who raise their voices against the powers that e, are treated even today: “Give me a moment, would you my friend? I’ve never been on trail for my thoughts before.” It could well have been The Trial of the World Million, set in 2019/20. This is a must-watch. Take a bow, Aaron Sorkin!
