The latest big budget original movie from Netflix, The Trial of the Chicago 7 is now streaming.
With an all start cast that includes Eddie Redmayne and Sacha Baron Coen, the film has achieved critical acclaim for its retelling of the true story of the ‘Chicago 7’.
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.
The Trial of the Chicago 7 is written and directed by Academy Award®-Winner Aaron Sorkin.
