FIRST LOOK: The Trial of The Chicago 7 – Netflix

At a time when peaceful and not so peaceful protests are happening, with a politically charged environment and a controversial election looming in the United States, this is the time to revisit 1968 with The Trial of The Chicago 7.

Sorkin’s script had to thread the evolution of peaceful protests into bloody riots outside the Democratic convention; the intense ideological debate between Yippie performance artist Hoffman and insider activist Hayden about the right way to stage a revolution; and the conspiracy trial dominated by larger-than-life protest leaders Hayden, Hoffman, and Rubin, as well as the unrepresented Seale, who was treated monstrously by the conservative Hoffman.
